“I went looking for my dreams outside of myself and discovered, it’s not what the world holds for you, it’s what you bring to it.” L. M. Montgomery

Anyone who knows me knows that I am a wee bit obsessed with the Anne with an E adaptation of Anne of Green Gables. It was sweet, cute and didn’t shy away from harsh realities of the time. 

The 2 things I loved most was Anne’s never-ending enthusiasm for life, her always seeing the ordinary as something fantastical (as with everything Anne), and of course the blossoming romance between Anne and Gilbert.

This is my first portrait brooch and I really enjoyed turning my sketch of Anne & Gilbert from a practice dance scene in Season 3 into a wearable piece of art!

Made To Order:   Most Booknerdfangirl jewellery is made-to-order. Please allow up to 10 days for your pretties to be made before they are posted out to you.

Care:                     Your brooch is a wearable piece of art, but it is a fragile one. Please don’t drop it. Acrylic can snap if dropped on a hard surface. Most of our designs are hand-painted and don’t take kindly to water. Don’t get them wet. Don’t feed them after midnight. (That last one is negotiable.. unless it’s a mogwai :p) If you need to clean your acrylic brooch, use a soft cloth.


Each of my designs are made from scratch here at Booknerdfangirl HQ. From the initial sketching of the design, choosing the perfect acrylics, before laser cutting and assembly here in my home studio north of Brisbane. Our pieces use high quality surgical steel and stainless steel parts & chains. As each design is handmade like a little piece of wearable art, your creation may vary in tiny ways. You can be assured that I will not release a Booknerdfangirl design into the wild without being absolutely delighted at the finished piece you will receive!

Every Booknerdfangirl piece is handmade with love & joy for the craft, the books & the fandoms!
