lost in the woods

the name this jeweller works under 'lost in the woods' reminds me of the hansel & gretel story. each brooch has connotations to the good & the evil - each piece has a sense of darkness & mystery surrounding it while at the same time remains light-hearted & fun.

these 'truly whimsical' brooches are made by a melbourne jeweller who showcases his work on the flickr page of Little Nemo in Slumberland. while sifting through the collection i found it hard to pick my favourites, but in the end i managed to narrow it down to the above three. the workmanship that goes into each brooch is amazing & is something i would never have the patience to do. in new zealand these brooches are available from ikoiko stores located in auckland & wellington.
