Robins are not just for Christmas. They are the gardener’s friend. The most recognisable garden bird, they are loved by many. They are brave and they can be tamed to eat from your hand and if you’re late with their tip-bit they will rap the window to remind you that they are expecting their breakfast.
There is a deep connection with the robin in rural Ireland. They are seen as messengers of solace and connect us to our ancestors. “When robins appear, loved ones are near.”
Brooches can be worn on coats, cardigans and used to adorn a wooly hat, scarf, wrap, or handbag
