Guinea Pig Brooch
This beautiful brooch has been handmade from a recycled copy of a Beatrix Potter book. You may recognise this particular image from the miniature illustrations which circle the beginning and end pages of every little Beatrix Potter book, however editions with this guinea pig are very rare!
The individual illustration has been sealed under glass, then mounted in a pretty brooch setting.
The brooch setting is made of a silver alloy, with beautiful antique-style scroll-work around the rim. It measures 4 cm x 4 cm (1.5 in x 1.5 in).
There are other illustrations from the book in other sizes and settings elsewhere in my shop, so please feel free to browse for more lovely Beatrix Potter jewellery! http://bit.ly/libraryjewellery_beatrixpotter
All my jewellery comes beautifully presented in a little velvet bag with a hand stamped and written label.
The book I've used was a well loved but badly damaged copy that had been donated to a charity shop. The charity received a donation from me, and the book is recycled and gets to live a second life :)
Because I have to wait for books to appear like this, numbers of these pieces are very limited - so make sure you get yours whilst they're available!
