‘NERD’ – Embroidered Heart Tattoo brooch


Exclusive to Holly & Co!

This hand embroidered badge is created using the traditional technique of goldwork. With delicate hand stitched wording, the heart and banner badge design gives a nod to traditional old school tattoos and will bring out the nerd in you!

A note from Holly…

This product was created in collaboration with Hattie McGill to feature in my book, Do What You Love, Love What You Do

Every micro chapter within the book features a unique small business product which creatively captures the key takeaway. I truly believe in the power of small business and wanted to bring the pages of my book to life in a way never done before, and allow you to share in that magic too. Because, believe me, when you do what you love, you’ll want to wear it, have it in your home and shout it from the rooftops too!
