PLEASE NOTE: There is a small scratch in the Galalith on the reverse of the brooch. $15 has been deducted from the price. The Galalith used for these brooches is Vintage and occasionally has small marks or scratches. The scratch is on the back of the brooch and can not be seen when worn. Please do not purchase if this will bother you. RETURNS will not be accepted. Please look at the photos prior to purchase as I do my best to capture the variations in the Galalith itself and any noticeable imperfections in the vintage material.
Approx 8cm high x 6cm wide
Materials: Galalith / Hand Painted
Each piece is signed ‘Pavone’ on the back.
This is an original piece of work handmade by Marie-Christine in her French Studio. Marie-Christine’s brooches are all individual works of art which take up to three weeks to create. The brooches are hand cut from old Galalith, (they are not moulded or laser cut). The Galalith starts of as a milky white and is then dyed in order to achieve the bold and vibrant colours . Each brooch is hand made, hand painted, polished and glazed. Every stage of the brooch production is done by hand.
Galalith is a man made plastic created from milk casein, hence the name “Gala” (milk) and lithos (stone), discovered in the late 19th century, is the first plastic ever made.
Raw Galalith requires hand cutting and several rounds of sanding and polishing to achieve the silky shiny finish.
Each Pavone piece on Wild Brooches is unique and the photos shown are of the actual brooch you are purchasing. Please treat your brooch with care and do not drop it on hard surfaces. Avoid contact with perfumes, lotions and sunscreen as they may dull or damage the galalith and surface decoration.
