As I love pretty much everything Mark Ryden makes, it was to be expected that I would get very, VERY excited about a brooch like this. Isn't it gorgeous? And yet again, slightly eerie, because it wouldn't be a Mark Ryden if it wasn't.
Anyway, I could maybe get over the fact that this brooch is very expensive. It's a Mark Ryden, so that's no surprise. But to have the slowest option of shipping to Europe already be nearly half the price of the actual thing…? Not to even mention custom fees that will no doubt follow… Consider my dream shattered. But it sure is gorgeous, isn't it?
