Unique Handmade Brooches from Hexagon {Review & Giveaway}

Hexagon
I often find myself amazed at other people's talents.

You took those professional-looking photographs yourself? You painted that stunning mural on your child's bedroom walls? How did I not know that you wrote a novel? You knit that entire sweater? You baked these to-die-for brownies from scratch? 

I'm telling you, there are a whole lot of impressive people out there.

What inspires me even more, however, is when those people take their talent, love, drive and passion and share it with the rest of us. Because, let's face it, that novel isn't improving anyone's life if it sits unpublished on your computer, now is it?

Which is why I couldn't help but be excited to be introduced to an Etsy shop that contains handmade, fashionable, eco-friendly brooches that can enrich our hearts and our wardrobes in such a simple yet stylish way. How could I not be excited to see the beauty and originality found at Hexagon?

handmade brooches

Straight from the suburbs of Toronto, Hexagon features colorful, eye-catching, one-of-a-kind brooches in a variety of shapes and sizes that are sure to bring a smile to anyone's face.

Looking for a way to turn your traditional outfit of a sweater and jeans into something... more? Just think about the compliments you'll receive by pinning on the Purple Star Brooch in the Art Nouveau Pattern!

Want a way to show your loved one that you're thinking of them on days beyond Valentine's Day? Imagine their surprise when they see the modern twist you've taken on the standard heart shape with the Geometric Orange Heart Brooch in the Floral Print!

Or maybe you are such a fan of your android phone that the idea of somehow turning it into a fashion statement is just too amusing and fun? Then look no further than the Pink Android Brooch in the Pink and Silver Pattern!

As I found myself in love with all seven of the shape options and all nine of the color and pattern options that Hexagon has to offer, when the Black & White Bird Brooch in the Vine and Leaf Pattern arrived, it was all that I could do to not rip right into the adorable (eco-friendly!) packaging to see what it would look like in person.

Unsurprisingly, it was stunning.

Measuring 3" wide and 1½" tall, the crisp lines of the wooden bird combined with the stark black and white paper design were only enhanced by the small touches of metallic silver. Love, love, love!

Having never been a "brooch person" in the past, I was happy that I didn't even have a moment's hesitation in pinning this sweet chickadee onto dresses, scarves, jackets, shirts, sweaters... I'm thrilled about the way that it adds a special and unique twist to just about any outfit!

how to wear a brooch

When it comes to accessories, it is one thing to pick up a trendy scarf or a cute hat from the store... but it's quite another when you find a signature item that can turn that scarf and hat into a fashionable, classy piece that is all your own.

Ranging in price from $11.78 to $16.90, all of the brooches from Hexagon showcase the time, care and talent that the owners put into each one. If you've been looking for a gift or a small purchase for yourself that isn't going to break the bank and will be sure to put a smile on your face every time you pin it on, this is the shop for you!

Visit Hexagon on Etsy to see their full selection of gorgeous items and be sure to connect with them on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Google+ to keep up with anything and everything artistic, creative and awesome that they have to offer.

Plus, thanks to their generosity, one person will soon be able to see just why I'm so in love with every creation that Hexagon has to offer, because...

One lucky person will win their choice of brooch from Hexagon!
