Eye Love - Heart Brooch


( / )

Eye Love - Heart Brooch is an original wearable design from the Eye Love Collection using midfire clay, underglazed and gloss glazed for shine and strength.  This piece is lovingly handmade and hand painted with original designs by Kathy Gardiner using brush underglazes. 

The Eye Love Collection of brooches have been designed to highlight the awareness of eye cancer specifically ocular melanoma in its varying forms. These vibrant yet minimalist pieces pop in their stylised and simplified form and are conceptualised as light-hearted, fun wearable pieces with a strong message of importance. While the brooches pop in both colour and design they encourage conversation and awareness highlighting the significance of regular eye checks and good eye health.  Three (3) designs, each in two (2) colour ways make up this collection.

From each brooch sale, AUD$10.00 will be on-donated to QIMR Berghofer Medical Research Institute's - Ocular Melanoma Research Team as the nominated charitable choice by Susan Vine, Ocular Melanoma Australia + New Zealand Support Group Founder and Advocate.

The Eye Love Collection has recently featured in Frankie Magazine ~ Issue 116
