This Yellow eyed penguin embroidered brooch is totally handmade with love.

The Hoiho (yellow eyed penguin) is a threatened bird of New Zealand, uncommon to see, usually gulping down fish far out a sea, or hiding in the sand dunes at sunset.  It is only found in the South Island.  I have been lucky to photograph these secretive birds, whilst venturing around the wild beaches of Dunedin.

Each brooch is stitched completely by hand, using specialised techniques.  Every brooch is a unique design, and I only make one of each bird.

It is light weight, attached with a brooch pin on the back.

Handmade in New Zealand.

Dimensions:

height:  9cm
