Little red felt brooch – postage free for UK mainland destinations


Little red felt brooch.

This little red felt brooch is handmade in merino or bergschaf wool with glass beads for decoration.

The beads have been collected from deconstructed necklaces (sorry, they are not precious stones!) and the centre is made from a recycled/crushed coffee 'pod', giving me an opportunity to make interesting use of a product that would usually be thrown away. The pods, being crumpled, give a faceted shine to the centre adding interest and this little brooch.

I was fascinated by the coffee pods when I first came across them and I was sure I could find a way to use them!  I'm not a coffee drinker, so when I decided to try crushing them I had to call on my neighbours. I hadn't expected to be given two full bags of them (sadly only in four colours, though!)  Actually, recycling the pods is rather more time consuming than I'd anticipated, so I don't think there will be as many of these in the pipeline as I'd first hoped! This is certainly a piece of quirky jewellery that's also a talking point!

To be fair, I believe these coffee pods are recycled by the manufacturers if the buyer takes them to a recycling centre, but I wonder how many do.   So my little felt brooches are just a (very) small contribution to lessening the rubbish mountain!

This brooch measures approximately 4.5cms diameter - meaurements for others will vary slightly, due to the variations natural to working with felt.

Shipping Policy

If you are ordering something I have in stock I will endeavour to post within a couple of days of confirmation of payment. Commissions may take from three days to several weeks to complete depending on size and complexity, so please discuss these. I will do my very best to hurry through orders if needed for a specific date

Refund Policy

Of course, it goes without saying that I hope you will fall in love with your purchase. Sadly, though, however carefully I try to describe things, occasionally what you see in a picture might not meet your expectations. My items are handmade, unique and each and every one will be different. I hope you will consider any slight differences between pictures and your received item as part of the charm of a handmade item rather than a detraction. Monitors will all show colours differently. With felt, areas that are softer – or thinner – than other areas, are inevitable. They are not faults, just quirks of working with wool in this way! If you want to return anything, please contact me immediately to tell me you want to return it. If you are returning it because you consider it is faulty, please also tell me the problem. Items for return should be sent back in the original packaging, or if you ripped your parcel open in anticipation, put the item, in my packaging, into another bag or protective box for return so it is secure and protected. Please be sure to use the original padding to avoid damage. Please make sure you have had it weighed and add the correct postage and return it WITHIN SEVEN DAYS. It is ESSENTIAL you get proof of postage, or register the package as I cannot accept responsibility for anything lost in the post. I will refund the purchase price of the item if it arrives in the same condition it left here, clean and suitable for publicity if not faulty. I am sorry, but like other mail order organisations, I cannot refund the postage costs, either for the original dispatch or for the return of the item.

Cancellation / Return / Exchange Policy

You have the right to cancel your order before it is dispatched and I will refund your money in full. If your order has already been dispatched, you must return it unused and its original state within seven working days from the day you receive it. You will receive a refund on the item but not the postage costs. In the case of custom orders, please think carefully about cancelling. I will cancel your order and refund your money if the product hasn't been made. However, if it has already been started and includes any custom elements in terms of colour combinations, or your own buttons, lace, beads, etc the order cannot be cancelled and individual elements cannot be taken off and returned.
