Pulped paper 'Lily of the Valley' painted flower brooch by Jan Cooper
Jan Cooper's flower brooches are made of pulped paper (mainly egg boxes!) and super glue, shaped and formed into a beautiful cluster of flowers and leaves. The whole piece is sensitively painted. They could as easily be a decoration on the table or to brighten a space!
These elegant brooches are 19cm long, with a strong clasp.
