Anyone else need a FRAGILE brooch at the moment? I know I do.

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. 

So here is a brooch for our Collective Grief as we all wander out into the sunlight, shell-shocked from two years of Covid but not as shell-shocked as those we are haunted by on the news. Let's all be careful with each other and mindful that we might be needing a little more space. 

The words are etched on 5mm. thick fluorescent hot pink acrylic. Each brooch has been carefully hand-painted, which gives them a hand-made feel. They fix with a metal clasp. 

£2 goes to Women for Refugee Women who support women seeking asylum in this country and challenge the injustices they experience. For years they have been advocating for a fair asylum process and working towards a world in which all women who cross borders have the right to safety, liberty and dignity.

🎁 Is it a gift? ✨PLEASE✨ if you are ordering more than one item let me know if they can share boxes! Otherwise they will come in as few boxes as possible. 🌲🙂 You can let me know and leave a gift message at checkout.

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 chains.

Shipping & Returns

I aim to send out all orders as soon as possible, usually within a couple days of receiving them. 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. Please allow two days from ordering to posting even if you choose Tracked 24 or Special Delivery.

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 full refund or exchange. 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 :-)
