on love from hetty and dave

Love From Hetty and Dave is amazing. I've spent most of the evening browsing through the broaches and I seriously can't pick out a favourite...favourites yes.....badgers, hearts and of course cats...but a favourite...not on your nelly kid. Love From Hetty and Dave is the brainchild of designer Zoe Larkins who is inspired by everything from Mexican arts and crafts to 1950's kitsch. She makes beautiful leather broaches (and necklaces, rings, hairbands) that are hand stitched. For her it's all about moving away from disposable mass manufactured jewellery and getting something unique- which I believe is something we can all get on board with. It also helps that some of the broaches are customisable...a kind of your name here type affair. Jodie Harsh favours the brand for hearts in her you know it's going to be all sorts of good.

I need one of these guys for my jacket...the lipstick broach is £12.50....most acceptable and roughly works out at about a week of smoking. Looks like giving up on cigarettes is having some unexpected upsides......

You should probs follow Love From Hetty and Dave....or at least drop by for a squatch at the stock.



  1. Thank you for sharing. I didn't know about Love From Hetty and Dave until your post. Which one is your favourite, I'm torn on a few designs.

  2. Hey Rachelle!
    If I had to choose a favourite it would probs be the cat...namely cause it's black...but also cause I'm that sort of crazy cat lady. However I feel I'd get more wear out of either the lipstick or the tattoo heart broaches.


  3. Ooh la la! What a lovely blog about me!
    So nice to read, thank you thank you for such kind words! xx

  4. LOVE the black cat :)), and Claire, regarding the swap, Lynzi is still waiting for 3 more participants details, i will keep you posted, have a fabulous day :)), XOXO

  5. I'm liking the wee foxes, I gave up smoking 2 years ago, put the money I saved away and had enough for a family holiday. Best thing I ever did, giving up the habit.

  6. My favourite would have to be the pink flamingo brooch or the personalised tattoo ones!

  7. These are amazing, I love the cat and the card & lipstick. Def going to check these out!!:)SarahD
