Pineapple Brooch from Jess Collinge

It's official: I'm madly in love.
With my pineapple brooch from JessCollinge.com
Isn't it a beauty?? It's perfect for a tiki-tropical look. This is the kind of brooch that perks up your outfit and your mood!

Jess Collinge's creations (including brooches, necklaces, rings and earrings) are all handmade by herself in the UK, using the technique of laser cutting, on acrylic and plywood. Jess Collinge sources many of of her materials from local, UK based companies as she finds it important to be conscious of where materials come from and to support other UK based businesses. You will notice from her collection that it is inspired by kitsch, fun and nostalgic imagery. Jess Collinge's goal is to make people smile. She's obsessed with flamingos, snowglobes and anything that glitters. 
She would roll herself in glitter, if she could! ;)
I'm fascinated by her talent and
 I'm sure you'll agree:

E' ufficiale: sono follemente innamorata. 
Della mia spilla ananas da JessCollinge.com
Vero che è di una bellezza?? Questa spilla rallegra e ravviva qualsiasi outfit ed è perfetta per un look tropicale!

Jess Collinge, crea spille, collane ed orecchini, tutte a mano, nell'Inghilterra, usando la tecnica del 'laser cutting' (ovvero, tagliare con il laser). La sua collezione è ispirata al kitsch e alle immagini divertenti e nostalgici. Il suo obbiettivo è di far sorridere le persone. Jess Collinge adora i glitter; se potesse si arrotolerebbe nei glitter! Sono affascinata dal suo talento, che potete ammirare anche voi:


          
Also among Jess Collinge's collection are the below items:


     Rainbow crystal disco sheep brooch. Click here because you know you want this baaaadly ;)
          Fernando the flamingo - laser cut brooch (available here)
       This guy's on my wishlist. I mean, just look at him. Irresistible!
          Lasercut strawberry earrings (adorable and available here):
  Last but not least, the Tropical Lasercut Brooch I'm wearing is  available here.

Adoro i colori della spilla, i piccoli strass brillanti (una caratteristica dei gioielli Jess Collinge) e mi piace il fatto che la spilla si vede; è la giusta misura! Non come certe spille che nemmeno si notano, essendo così piccoli. Il pacco, ben sigillato e impacchettato mi è arrivato in pochi giorni dall'Inghilterra quindi sono molto soddisfatta anche dal servizio. 

Se state cercando un regalo chic e particolare per un parente, un amica o per voi stesse, dirigetevi al negozio di Jess Collinge:

I can't stop admiring this pineapple brooch. It stands out from the crowd. I love the colors, the pretty little rhinestones (Jess Collinge tries to embellish most of her creations with crystals!) and the size. It's annoying when brooches are so tiny that you can barely see them; this brooch is the perfect size!

The delivery was very speedy and the brooch was carefully packed so it got to me safe and sound from the United Kingdom, where JessCollinge is based.

  12. How fabulously fun! I just adore this current vogue for kitschy, often handmade brooches. The abundance of wood and plastic ones hitting the scene these days is dazzling and is filling up my wishlist practically faster than I come across them! :)

    Jess' work looks marvelous and is new to me, I believe. Thank you very much for the stylish introduction, dear gal!

    Big hugs & happy wishes for this new week!
    ♥ Jessica
