Distelfink Brooch #6, A Philadelphia Museum of Art Collaboration
Commissioned by The Philadelphia Museum of Art Store and also available in their newest shop, this collaboration was inspired by early American design, specifically Pennsylvania Dutch artwork from the museum's collection. The stylized bird, or Distelfink, was a common sight in PA Dutch design and symbolizes happiness and good fortune. A percentage from the sale of each Distelfink Brooch will be donated to the PMA

This lovely, lightweight jewelry is handcrafted from recycled vintage tins. Most of these intricately printed tins were manufactured in England in the 1960s and 70s to contain items such as tea and cookies.
In a previous life, the beautiful vintage tins that this jewelry is made from was used and loved. You may find variances in the artwork such as tiny scratches and dings.
