Halloween is a super fun time of year. The idea of dressing up in costume (with Halloween brooches of course), feeling spooky, wearing darker style makeup and Halloween inspired outfits, decorating my home and carving jack o lanterns. It’s so much fun and I love that it’s also always the week before my birthday.
When Daisy Jean Floral got in touch to collab with her her upcoming collections I jumped at the chance to review a couple of pieces from her Halloween collection.
This year, her Halloween collection is all about witches and the animals that they associate with. When I saw the designs I knew I needed the ram and the crow brooches.
Crows are beautiful, highly intelligent inky black feathered birds. I love the ‘caw caw’ noise they make, and whenever I’ve been in Europe and America I’ve loved seeing one.
Crows are often the symbols of bad luck and it’s been told that they are the messengers of death. I have a real morbid curiosity, so the symbolism around these beautiful birds is really interesting to me. ‘The Winged Accomplice’ Brooch is a really beautiful shape, I like the fact that it’s also sturdy and feels well made to me.
Have you seen the movie ‘The Witch’? I don’t want to give too much away but there is a really evil horned goat in that film. This satanic goat is clearly just as evil…. I mean look at him! It’s been long known that the official symbolism of the Church of Satan is a rams head which is called the Sigil of Baphomet. Interesting stuff huh!
These brooches are all individually hand painted and then coated with a layer of clear resin. I think they’re perfect for adding a spooky touch to any outfit, or bag. You can read another blog post about different ways to style your brooches if you need some extra inspiration.
Another one of my favourite pieces from this Halloween collection is the cat brooch where she’s sleeping on a spell book, I love her!
I can’t wait to pair these brooches with some of my outfits this week in the lead up to Halloween!
These items are a limited run, with a small batch of stock for the release and the remainder on a ‘made to order’ basis to ensure no one misses out. These made to order pieces have a turn around time of about 2 weeks. The back of these brooches has a simple silver pin clasp to attach to your outfit.
