Mourning Ribbon

  • Inspired by Victorian Era mourning ribbons, these magnetic brooches honor grief, and ask for gentleness from those around you without having to say a word.

    Hand stitched from satin and velvet ribbons, the focal point is a Victorian Era glass cabochon in a vintage brass finding. From that hangs a vintage brass heart shaped locket, for holding an image of your loved one. The ribbon tails read “In Mourning, Be Kind” in gold foil. The brooches attach with a magnetic closure, making them easier to move from clothing item to clothing item, and safe for delicate fabrics. Wear them in the early phases of grief, on anniversaries, or difficult days when you need more support.

    PLEASE NOTE: Each ribbon is fully handmade and hand-sewn; please expect some irregularities and view them as part of what makes each piece special. Please allow up to one week from ordering for production before shipment.
