I’ve been an on/off fan of brooches for years, and when I was younger I used to adorn myself in all sorts of badges and charity shop brooches. And now, thanks to Erstwilder, I feel that I will need a whole new room just for accessories.
“Decidedly fun, often outrageous, somewhat quirky but delightfully companionable; each character in the limited edition Erstwilder collection has it’s own little message and provides the perfect antidote to those drab, ordinary days.
Lovingly designed in Melbourne by a team of local illustrators.
Erstwilder collections are available in selected boutiques across Australia, New Zealand and online.”
I first became aware of Erstwilder when those delightful babes over at Junebugs & Georgia Peaches featured them on their blog, and I fell in love with the cute and colourful pieces. And so when the very sweet Marc from Erstwilder contacted me offering me the chance to own a few pieces from the collection, I jumped at it!
It took me a little while to narrow it down to just three pieces, but I ended up going for ‘Phoebe the Fairy Wren’, ‘Martha the Mermaid’ and ‘Shake, Rattle&Roll Milkshake. I also ended up visiting the Erstwilder team at a tradeshow and when I found out that they were selling them there I couldn’t resist adding ‘Faustine Fox’ and ‘The Schnauzer and Klaus’ to my little collection.
It goes without saying that seeing the jewellery in real life brings it alive in ways that photos just can’t. The pieces are brighter, glossier and lovelier than I could have imagined. They come in aorable boxes with sweet little names and short stories and they are really quite special. They would make the most perfect gift – either for a friend or for yourself 😉
Erstwilder use local designers to create their unique limited pieces, and I love that they are a mixture of fantasy and reality and I adore the variety!
The way that the resin is layered gives the pieces a 3D effect, and they are super eye catching. I’ve found them really easy to add to outfits, as they stand out but don’t take over. I think it’s important to add finishing touches to an outfit to make it your own and reflect your personality, and these lovelly pieces do just that.
I have my eye on a few pieces that I wish to add to my collection next (all of them) and it’s also exciting to know that they are stocked all over the world – click here for a current list of Erstwilder stockists.
