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.

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.

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 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 hello@erstwilder.com.

Designs come packaged in Erstwilder gift boxes.

Warthog brooch

Love 💕 this brooch, and the service was great. Also it didn’t take that long to be posted. Awesome product.

Sarah (Bli Bli, AU)
Sweet warthog

This is my first Erstwilder brooch! I love the pearlescent tusks and gold weave on the body! This little guy is a lovely reminder of my most favourite holiday, where I met my sponsored child of 10 years. We also got to meet some of the wildlife and I just fell in love with the warthogs, they are now my favourite African animal. This brooch will go so well on the dress I am going to make from African fabric that was a beautiful gift from my sponsored child.

Cute little thing!

So happy to add this cute little thing to my collection! Thank you Erstwilder for keeping me informed during the whole process. No more waiting anxiously at home for the parcel to arrive.

Susan L. (Rooty Hill, AU)
Thank you

My friend always gets her unique brooches from you and I’ve always admired them. Well I ordered some and within days I had them in my hand.
The attention to detail, quality of the brooch and the comments from people when I wore them.
Thank you so much

Emily (Sydney, AU)
Love it

The moment Out Of Africa was launched I couldn't resist this little guy. I love the opal on the tusks it's a beautiful touch, his eyelashes are so cute and the texture contrast of his body and ears are a wonderful finishing touch. He reminds me of my pet pig Pumba. Thankyou Erstwilder for another masterpiece.
