Verdigris Bee Brooch


Image of Verdigris Bee Brooch

This beautiful, stylised bee is a vintage brass casting which has been treated and painted to bring out beautiful tones of verdigris turquoise and green. No two are quite alike!

Each brooch has a coating to protect its colour and prevent further oxidisation.

The bee measures 55mm (over two inches) at its widest point, so is a great size. The brooch has a gold plated pin with secure lobster fastening.
