This is a lovely Victorian-inspired black swan brooch is lovingly handmade from fabric, paper, and ribbon.

The paper parts are protected with a light spray varnish. Of course, while the varnish will help protect the paper parts from the elements, this isn't the type of brooch I'd recommend wearing on your coat in the middle of a rainstorm. Instead, this brooch is designed for adorning those clothing staples that are worn indoors, and are protected under a coat or jacket while worn outside.

Measures 2.5" across, 4.5" long.
