1960s and 70s-style Twiggy head brooches by Holly Harris

Twiggy 1970s brooch

Holly Harris's Etsy shop is full of jewellery that's sure to delight fans of 60s and 70s style. We're especially fans of these Twiggy head brooches


The brooches are inspired by Twiggy mannequin heads that themselves were based on the famous fashion model and used to display hats and scarves in French boutiques (take a look on eBay for examples). They've been recreated in plywood, at approximately 8cm high. 

Showing a brilliant attention to detail, there are two versions of the brooch available: the example below is based on the 1960s design of the mannequin head, while the version above is the modified, more colourful 1970s version. Both come presented on a vintage, or suitably retro-patterned piece of cards. Don't forget to take a look at the rest of Holly's Etsy shop for more reasonably priced retro jewellery.

The brooches are priced at a bargain £7.50 each.
