They call her worm-tongue, an appropriate appellation for this saucy, short-sighted librarian.
Height 70 mm x Width 42 mm
Each piece is hand assembled, hand painted and released in limited quantities. All designs are made from layered resin. As designs are produced from original illustrations and are hand assembled, hand painted and hand finished, there may be minor differences from piece to piece, making each as unique as the those who wear them. Metal components used in creating this piece include a beautiful and strong silver-plated steel brooch pin. Any earring posts, earring hooks, necklace chains and jump rings used for this piece are made from stainless steel.Designs come packaged in Erstwilder gift boxes.
Please be aware that resin is akin to ceramic and glass and therefore may be damaged if dropped or knocked. Due to the use of high quality silver-plating in our brooch clasps, tarnishing and oxidisation can occur, producing black and gold discolouration. As with all silver products, you can simply restore it using a silver cloth. Keep your Erstwilder companion neatly tucked away in this box when not being worn, avoid contact with perfumes, lotions, water and excessive sunlight and you’ll have a trusted friend for years to come.
Brooch clasps are made from plated brass. Components have changed over time and older designs may be made with other materials. If you have any questions at all, please email the team at email@example.com.
Designs come packaged in Erstwilder gift boxes.

Rita the Anteater Brooch
I love my new brooches! They are all so beautiful and unique. I love being able to dress up but add my own a quirky twist. I especially love my Anteater and Centaur brooches. They are also a really nice size.
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!!!
Just the quirkiest bit of fun. Love the color, heft, dimension and translucence.
Bought as a gift. Haven't given it yet but I love it! So funky and will definitely add some excitement to outfits!
