Keep an oatcake close to your heart (and stomach) with this beautiful pure Bronze Scruffy Little Herbert brooch keepsake.
Hand sculpted in Staffordshire, this tactile piece of jewellery really does stand out as a thing of beauty.
Once sculpted, the oatcake is then goes through the 'burning' stage before being fired in a kiln with coconut based carbon for several hours.
One of the most endearing charms to these oatcakes are the odd naturally occurring bubbles, cracks, ripples and frills which are in a likeness to the edible Staffordshire oatcakes that let the flavours of the filling flood out.
We use a lot of elbow grease to polish each oatcake using a range of tools, buffers and polishing papers and then apply a final coat of clear lacquer to keep the lustre finish of the bronze oatcake.
Every bronze oatcake is hand crafted so will be a unique piece to you and they will differ very slightly from the photos shown. This brooch is intended for use through woven fabrics that the pin slides through effortlessly.
