Here are a few of the jigsaw brooches I've sold recently via my online shop.
I've had a bit of a rush of custom orders for jigsaw brooches recently, which I always love, because I get to converse directly with my lovely customers, and find something that is pertinent to them.
And I've discovered that behind every brooch lies a story.
I was contacted by a customer in Germany who wanted an Isle of Mull brooch to bring back memories of a happy working holiday last summer;
The Melbourne brooch and the Isle of Bute brooch were both for the same lady- one place is where she lives, the other where she is from.
An Australian girl asked me to find a Welsh brooch for her friend who's home-sick for Newport, having just returned from 2 years living there.
A lucky boyfriend has been the recipient of one of the connecting Suffolk brooches, the other was kept by the girlfriend who's missing him as he's away working in France.
And the North Carolina? Who knows?!
