Banksia Man Brooch

Our Banksia Man brooch design has been produced with a minor flaw. A small hole can be seen in the backing layer where the brooch clasp has been placed, and though the hole is common in our designs, for this piece it has resulted in a shadow being visible when looking at the design from the front. The visibility of the shadow when looking at the piece, from varies from piece to piece. Due to this fault (visible shadow) we will be listing the piece on ERSTWILDER.COM at $34.95 rather than our regular $39.95 RRP

“That big Captain, with his scrubby and bushy eyebrows, was - who do you think? He was the biggest and baddest of the Banksia men.” The Northcott Society and Cerebral Palsy Alliance 2019


Each piece is made from laser cut and layered resin, hand assembled, hand painted and released in limited quantities. As all of our designs are lovingly glued, assembled and painted by hand there can be finger print marks and very slight variations and blemishes from piece to piece. Due to the hand mixed nature of the resins in our our designs it is also common and normal to find tiny flecks or bubbles in the resin layers. All in all this just makes each piece as special and unique as you are.

Brooch clasps, necklace chains and jump rings are made from silver-plated steel. Earrings hooks and posts are made from high quality, hypoallergenic stainless steel.


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.

So happy.

Banksia Man has come to work with me (secondary school) and has received a high Teenagers of Greater Melbourne approval rating.

From the online shopping platform through to prompt delivery and with lovely, sturdy packaging my Erstwilder experience has been excellent.

Other pins in my modest Erstwilder collection receive compliments each time I wear them. I couldn't reccoment Erstwildering highly enough!

Full of personality

A quirky addition to showcase our Australian history. It will be worn with pride.

Absolutely Perfect!

I recently went to the Blue Mountains and remembered how much I loved the Banksia men from the stories. This looks perfect - I especially love how shady he looks. My order arrived very quickly and was even better than pictured.

Love the whimsy!

I love the size and how whimsical your pieces are. I have a huge collection now.

Happy with brooch, disappointed in selling out of peter rabbit series

Very happy with my brooch but so disappointed that the latest series has sold out and now selling for over double the price on eBay. I know that’s not your fault but is there a chance you will be releasing any more Peter rabbit
Many thanks Vernice

Saving our furbabies

I just received my new gorgeous brooches and they are amazing! Penguin, birdie, and magnificent lion and what's even more special is erstwilder donating to save wildlife it's a Win Win!!😍😍😍

Gorgeous collectable

I have loved Erstwilder’s quirky and unique range for sometime now, but the collections just keep getting better. The endangered animals collection is gorgeous. It’s sad we have to have this collection, but what a great way to raise awareness and get conversations happening, as my Erstwilder brooches are always guarded to spark conversations.

Picked by my 5yo, adored by me.

My daughter is so excited whenever I wear these, but they're totally my favourite too. Stunning and well made, the colour just sings happiness. My new favourite brand.

Happy with my Red Panda!

Bought it as a gift for my 8 year old who loves the Red Panda. I'm loving the endangered series and the brooches I've bought from this series always becomes a talking point about animal protection. Brooch came in a lovely hard box! However, the packaging can be improved with a slot or soft fabric in order to securely fasten the pin back into the box instead of having to work with a sponge (nonetheless, very minor issue).

A beautiful little creature

Frond Fox has such an appealing little bright face and her neutral colour will go with many colours. Love how she is multi layered to give her depth.Excellent fast service and another quality brooch,.thankyou.Nice long pin,easy to do up.
