Once again, the end of another month has arrived with surprising speed. I don’t know why I am even shocked any more. In a bid to try and forget about the utter mess that is the UK at the moment, here is my brand of the month, which is the Australia-based:
The brand was founded by two sisters, Phoebe and Lauren, in early 2015. They initially worked mainly in wood, but soon started to make brooches out of acrylic. I love ordering from Deer Arrow – the customer service is fantastic, the postage costs are surprisingly good considering the company is based on the other side of the world, and the designs are gorgeous.
My first foray into the world of Deer Arrow was this awesome Happily Never After Brooch. Turning the traditional ‘Happily Ever After’ fairytale phrase on its head, it offers a darker perspective.
Unicorns are really big at the moment, and Deer Arrow’s gorgeous Unicorn Brooch is available in three different colourways.
The Tiny Dancer Brooch is perfect for ballet lovers, and comes in pink or sparkly acrylic.
The Alice in Wonderland collection is simply gorgeous: my favourite piece from it is the Drink Me Brooch.
Deer Arrow are continually releasing new designs and pushing themselves to create detailed and intricate jewellery. Nowhere is this more evident than with their Pyrex brooches, which feature beautifully ornate designs. My favourite is this Friendship Pyrex Brooch.
There are lots more designs available on the Deer Arrow website, including trains, spaceships and other brooches with an Alice or a fairytale theme. I recommend following them on Instagram, too: popular designs often sell out shortly after being restocked, and they announce the reappearance of these designs on their feed.
