Do you know the capybara? This funny animal is in fact the biggest rodent that exists! He looks like a huge guinea pig, and we can't lie to each other, he's too cute. The capybara brooch is a symbol of friendship, give it to a friend!
The brooch is fashioned from solid oak wood assembled and painted by hand. The pin back is hypoallergenic, lead and nickel free, dark silver in color.
Wood is a living material with slight color variations, which makes each piece unique.
If you can, avoid contact with water or moisture. You can also rub a little vegetable oil with a soft cloth on the surface of the pieces to revive the shine of the wood.
What is Atelier Méïzou?
The woods used to make the unique pieces come exclusively from France and Germany. The different solid woods give rise to a palette of colors: beech, pear, walnut... Each piece is fashioned from a beautiful color chart of several types of natural wood. The wood is then very often left natural in order to enhance its beautiful color variations and give a unique rendering according to its veins.
The laser cutting of the pieces gives access to a meticulous level of detail, allowing the exact transcription of the adorable illustrations created by Marine. Painting and assembly are handmade.
Each piece is then sanded rigorously in order to obtain a very soft touch and well rounded edges. The pieces are then passed under a thin layer of French organic linseed oil, to protect them over time and bring out their beautiful details and the hues of the woods.
