Bok Bok B’gerk Brooch – Christmas Tree
Nothing says ‘Christmas’ like a tree, but did you know in the 1930’s the first artificial Christmas Trees were made by a company whose primary business was the manufacture of toilet brushes! They used the same technique to make the trees as they did the toilet brushes, however they died Christmas tree bristles green.
This brooch was laser cut in Buninyong, Australia using the eco-friendly wood of the Alder Tree. Alder trees have a rapid growth rate and help increase nitrogen and organic matter in the soil, which assists in the improvement of soils with poor fertility.
This brooch measures 6.5 cms x 5 cms wide.
