The other night my partner and I were going out to a Christmas banquet with friends. It is one of the rare occassions when Shane sports a shirt and jacket. Feeling that he might look 'boring' and 'normal' he commissioned me to make a 'man brooch' for him. this is the design that emerged!

The body of the brooch is made out of handknit felt in a deep marbly purple. It is ordained with a handmade button in a pinstripe cotton, some bright green embroidery and some golden woolen tassles. And it attached safely to your garment of choice with a safety brooch pin.

I think it looks a little bit like a badge of honour.

Go on, get in touch with your metrosexual side.
otherwise you might be normal and boring.
