FRAGILE HANDLE WITH CARE brooch

A Fragile brooch because sometimes we all need to be handled with care. 

After my Mum died I wished there was some sort of international symbol of mourning that I could wear; those dusty Victorian black habits suddenly made sense to me. I wanted people to give me a wide berth, and for God's sake, not ask me to smile. 

£2 goes to Welsh Women's Aid.

$39.00

Details & Dimensions

The words are etched on 5mm. thick fluorescent hot pink acrylic.

Each brooch has been carefully hand-painted with white pigment, which gives them a hand-made feel. They fix with a metal clasp. 

Care instructions

Acrylic can break if dropped and will snap under pressure. Please store your jewellery in its box and keep away from lotions and sprays as moisture can discolour metal parts. 

Shipping & Returns 

I aim to send out orders within 2-3 days, but at busy time this may take a litlte longer. Special orders and bespoke designs can take up to a week longer, and with such a big range of products, some designs are made to order so can't be sent next day. Everything is still made by me! All post is sent Royal Mail Tracked-48. You will get an email to let you know when your order is fulfilled and on its way. 

If for any reason you are unhappy with your purchase you can return it to Wear and Resist in its original box and packaging within a month of purchase for a refund excluding postage. For reasons of hygiene I am afraid I cannot refund earrings.

This badge is perfect

I am recovering from major surgery and have no visible scars, but need a bit of extra ‘space’ and time. This badge has been just what I need and so many people have commented on how lovely it is.
So simple, but just right! Thank you Sarah :-)

How it all started

About Wear and Resist

Wear and Resist was launched by me, Sarah Day, in early 2017 as a way to channel my frustration at the political climate into a creative pursuit that would raise money for women's charities.
