Mel says...

"I remember first finding Erst Wilder’s wares shortly after moving to Brisbane in 2006. Their brooches were front and center in a glass jewelry display at a boutique in Brisbane city and I thought they were vintage, being a lover of antiques. The shop assistant told me they were brand new and I became an instant fan. I loved their thoughtful packaging, incredible attention to detail and just the sheer quality of their pieces. The ode to older style materials and styles really appealed to me greatly. 

So when I contacted them about possibly working together, I was so surprised and flattered to hear that they were actually thinking of getting in touch with me to collaborate."

Omg these are on high rotation!

My new fave! I were with one snoopy and one Woodstock! And love it!

Rita - bringing sparkle to my everyday

I could not be happier with Rita. Not only she shares the first name with my best friend who lives on the other side of the world and who I miss so much, but she SPARKLES. I love everything about this brooch! Her name, her little story (i am a bookworm) and her spectacles. Beautiful brooch and I cant wait to wear it as soon as I am back at work!!!
