Stylish, hand-assembled resins bring this smartly-presented Surgeon Fish brooch to life, its deep-blue body making it fit a fashion-forward favourite when pinned to your favourite outfit. Part of the Pete Cromer Australian Sea Life collection, this sartorial stunner makes a compelling companion piece when paired with our bold hoop-shaped essential earrings or with its own matching enamel pin.

70mm x 43mm (H x W)


Dare we be so bold as to name them the most well-dressed species in the sea? It's tough competition to be sure, but these aquarium favourites make a strong impression.

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 hello@erstwilder.com.

Designs come packaged in Erstwilder gift boxes.

I am totally in LOVE with this brooch! It was part of my first ever EW order and I am thrilled with the whole box! The brooches are so much better in real life, with lots of depth to the colors and amazing details. I'm hooked!!

A Fishy Tale

I recently purchased a Sartorial Surgeon Fish Brooch, a Bedazzling Butterfly Fish Brooch and the Emboldened Emperor Penguin brooch to add to my collection and was thrilled when I received them. They are exactly as the pictures portrayed. The quality, designs and colours of all the pieces produced by Erstwilder are extremely high which is a wonderful asset to them.

From the time I placed my order to the time of receipt of my items, the company emailed me giving me the status of my goods, which arrived in a very timely manner. I love the fact that it is like one big happy family and they treat their customers as part of that family too.

Please keep up the good work, Erstwilder. You are doing a great job.
