This precious baby owl brooch, created from a combination of textured resins, with hand-painted details, takes his name from the noted Greek mathematician, physicist, engineer, inventor and astronomer. Also a baby owl is called an owlet, but we reckon the aforementioned Grecian already knew that.
Please note each piece may differ slightly from one another, and from the example pictured. ‘Young Archimedes’ features a gorgeous shimmering orange resin with a light coloured, cloud-like texture throughout. This light texture affects the overall orange tone in part or as a whole, and makes each piece entirely unique.
Wisdom comes with age. Young Archimedes’ contention is that there must be a different base level of wisdom for different birds.
Height 60 mm x Width 52 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 silver-plated 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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Designs come packaged in Erstwilder gift boxes.

Loved by Erstwildians
Earned massive brownie points with these. Girlfriend loved them. Impossible to go wrong choosing any of the brooches, they are all considered “super cute” and are beautifully packaged when they arrive.
Delivery was quick. Highly recommend.
So prettier than the photo. I’m sure he will become a favourite. Arrived so quickly too.
The colours are so vibrant and pretty. It looks amazing in light :)
Young Archimedes is such a little cutie! He sits nicely on my shirt and his adorable eyes looking out at the world. His colouring suits me well and I have received many compliments about him.
He came wrapped beautifully as usual and fit comfortably in his little resting place (his box). Another adorable brooch for my Erstwilder collection.
