All the little critters

A little while back I had the absolute pleasure of meeting the best team in Melbourne and I've been welcomed into their family with open arms! Who might I be talking about, you ask? Well it's Erstwilder and they are the top accessory company in Australia, if you didn't already know about their brilliant designs. Recently Erstwilder has launched their own online store, and it was only a few short months ago that I was jumping with excitement over the news, which was super secret at that point.

After being a huge fan of the brand for a while now, and continuously falling in love with the adorable little critters and items that are released each season, it only seemed fitting that we would finally team up. Together we worked out a plan, and everything was set in motion to snap a few hundred images of the stunning range in stock for the website. Other than being super excited about the shoot, I have to admit I was dying to get into Erstwilder HQ more than anything. I got to meet the team, learn more about the product, and got the sneaky previews of the new website before it went live.

Armed with boxes of adorable stock and my dear friend and photographer, we set out on a sunny afternoon to shoot each and every item we could possibly shoot. Pairing different styles with different outfits, colours with complementing fabrics and hairstyles with accessories - we had it all planned. Through this whole process, I ended up falling in love with so many more items, learned how cute they can look with a variety of different looks, and became obsessed with the whole new range of Travel goodies.

I've always had very specific taste when it comes to brooches but shooting all of these little cuties has opened my eyes and broadened my taste. From adorable little hooters, foxes of all colours and shapes and the so many sweet little faces, I can't get enough of all the new styles.


As with all designs from Erstwilder, each and every character has a name and a story. Half the fun when receiving your new item is reading the little card introducing your new accessory. Sammy the Sloth is the absolute cutest hipster sloth ever created and Daisy the Cow is such a cutie. I'm also loving the Kombi Van brooch from the travel range. There are so many great items from this specific range and it's hard to choose just one. 

This was such a great experience, and I absolutely loved how well I got to know the product and the extensiveness of the collections. I fell in love with adorable earrings, statement necklaces and the brilliant invention of the double pinned brooch. After seeing and shooting so many of the products, I can't wait to see what's in store for Erstwilder in the future, and I can't wait to shoot for them once again.

  1. Congrats! I noticed you in the product images when I went to link my owl necklace in my latest post! I love Erstwilder so much! My parents brought me back my first Erstwilder brooch from Tasmania around 3 years ago and my collection has just grown since then!
