khepri collection: pushing ... scarab beetle hand-dyed linen brooch

Regular price $ 24.00 Sale

Pushing ... pushing. I think we can all relate to feeling like we're pushing the sun across the sky every day - or a dung ball across the desert. This brooch is medal shaped ... and I'm pretty sure you deserve a medal.
Hand and machine stitching plus some stamping, including the scarab and dung ball which I carved myself. Hand dyed in rustic purple.
These big pins look great on scarves, jackets or bags.
I wrote a little thing about dung beetles and doing the daily work of making things: you can read it here if you want.
