Engaging, hand-assembled resins bring this bouncy baby Sandpiper mini brooch to life. It exudes an endearing smallness that adds an extra touch of charm when pinned to your favourite outfit. Part of the Pete Cromer Australian Sea Life collection, this marine bird makes a compelling companion piece when paired with any of the other awesome designs in this collection.

38mm x 34mm (H x W)


The best part about having such a small body and such short legs is the natural nimbleness. Sure, sandpipers are known for "teetering", but that's just the way they like to walk.

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 very slight variations and blemishes from piece to piece. Due to the hand-mixed nature of the resins in 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 clasp is made with 100% stainless steel pin and plated brass screws. 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

Tiny baby of joy

Such a sweet little brooch. Beautiful resin best seen in person. Great personality.

Joanne (Melbourne, AU)
Balanced Baby Sandpiper Mini Brooch

I love my new brooch. I am a fan of Erstwilder minis and, as a teacher of young children, my brooches are very popular with my students. I love the many colours and fine details of my baby sandpiper. I will wear it lots! The new environmentally friendly Erstwilder packaging is excellent, too!

Delivered next day - fav piece

So impressed to receive my snap piper mini brooch order the day after release. I’ve have worn it non stop since. It’s the perfect size, beautifully made and the colours are sensational. So many compliments when wearing it. It’s truly unique.

Pete Cromer Collection

What a beautiful collection. So many brooches to choose from. I purchased The Balanced Baby Sandpiper and The Guarded Golden Ghost Crab. Both brooches look amazing. Erstwilder provided fast and effortless delivery and I love the wonderful level of customer service they provide, whenever I make a purchase.❤️
