Second-hand finds: Animal brooches

Intet kan løfte et ensfarvet og lidt kedeligt outfit som en farverig eller glitrende broche med personlighed. Uglebrochen i træ her købte jeg på et loppemarked i København for mange år siden. Jeg fik den for 1 krone.

Nothing can lift a monochrome and boring outfit like quirky jewellery. I found this old owl brooch made in wood at a flea market in Denmark years ago. I paid 1 krone for it (10 p).

Jeg har et eller andet med tigere, så hapsede hurtigt denne broche, da jeg så den i Trinity Hospice genbrugsbutikken i Chiswick. Pris 3 pund.

I have a thing for tigers, so I quickly grabbed this one when I saw it in the Trinity Hospice charity shop in Chiswick. Price 3 pounds.

Tredje broche er denne heraldiske drage, lavet af London-smykkefirmaet Sardi, som er kendt for deres glitrende kitsch brocher med masser af glitterværk og krystaller. Den kostede 5 pund i Trinity Hospice genbrugsbutikken i Chiswick.

Med mit efternavn in mente (og nu hvor jeg ikke kan overskue at købe en rigtig hund) burde jeg måske også investere i denne nuttede Basset-broche. Du kan se alle Sardis brocher her.


The third brooch is this heraldic dragon, made by the London-based company Sardi. They are known for their quite kitsch brooches, filled with glitter and crystals. I paid 5 pounds for this one in the Trinity Hospice charity shop in Chiswick.

And maybe I should honour my last name with this cute Basset brooch. You can take a look all Sardi’s brooches and other jewellery here.
