Frequently Asked Questions

Do you create custom artwork? 
Absolutely! If you have an idea for a collaborative or commissioned piece please send us an email.

What materials do you use? 
Every brooch is completely hand embroidered with real gold metal embroidery thread, silk thread, silk charmeuse, and finished with gold plated stainless steel locking bar pinbacks. 

Select embroideries have embellishments with opal, garnet, sapphire, tourmaline, natural zircon, and fresh water pearls. Others have accents with soft silk chenille thread and gold beads, spangles and accoutrements.

Are your brooches available as patches? 
Yes. Brooches are easily interchangeable with sew-on patches. If you would prefer to purchase a patch please make a note in your order and we will happily convert it for you.

How do I take care of goldwork?
Like all natural metals, gold threads will darken over time. Keep the metal brightest by storing your artwork out of direct sunlight. To read more about caring for your artwork see Materials & Care.

What currency are your prices in? 
All prices are in Canadian dollars. 

Where do you ship from? 
We ship from Vancouver, B.C. and use Canada Post as our courier. Once your parcel reaches its destination country it will switch delivery providers to your location's main courier service.

How do I return or exchange something?
