The Swift collections features the Swift in different forms.
These pin brooches are made with just the Swift’s head and tail.
They are hand cast in resin, shaped, polished and embellished with real 22ct gold leaf, that highlights different features in the swift.
This little Swift is Sky blue in colour with a golden eye and beak with just the edges of its tail highlighted.
Did you know that Swifts eat, sleep and even mate in the sky? Swifts rarely touch the ground. They are also the fastest birds in level flight, with an impressive top speed of 69mph.
It has a 1.1cm long pin which makes it ideal for pinning to thicker fabrics which is perfect for this time of year, pin it to ties, lapels, jackets, hats and scarfs.
The pin itself is brass plated and comes with a back that locks on to the pin, which you gently pull to release. The back of the brooch also features a small round disc hand stamped with my double ‘A’ makers mark logo.
I love to use mine to dress up my woolly hat with something fun & pin my snood a bit tighter.
