The Eucalyptus Flower Brooch
The Eucalyptus Flower Brooch_ 2 colours
I love the challenge of interpreting the beautiful flowers and plants I see into wearable art. I try to capture the vibrancy and life in each piece which usually involves a lot of etching and hand inking.
In my last work I have produced five of my favourite flowers.
This is the Eucalyptus (Macrocarpa and Kruseana): I love the contrast of the grey green and sometimes almost silver foliage with these strange flowers which push their way out of a pod, revealing brilliant pink or yellow tendrils to tempt native bees. These eucalypts are trees f the hard country like the mallee and they symbolise the ability of nature to produce something of absolute beauty in the harshest surrounds. Brooch is approx 8×4.5cm and has yellow or pink/red flowers.
I ship as soon as the product is complete. Sometimes I have to customise a piece for a customer. Usually orders ship within 102 weeks of purchase. If there is a delay I will discuss it with you.
I use Australia Post for all shipping and I use tracking on all parcels.

A word about pricing.....
Many people ask how I decide on the prices for my pieces. All of my works are priced according to design time, materials cost, time to assemble and the amount of intricate working such as ink rubbing or painting involved. Custom pieces cost extra due to design time additions.
I try to keep my prices as reasonable as I can as I want theOttopiary curiosities to be accessible to all purchasers.
