As I am located in Europe, most of the shops and brands I review are also European. That’s why it’s always a special treat when I get to review a shop from another continent. And if the owner happens to be a wonderful retro lady herself, then that’s cause for a small celebration! This week I have the pleasure of reviewing just such a shop. The Retro Raven is a small American brand that has recently started making waves in the retro and pinup community with their adorable and unique designs .
They specialize in glittery resin-cast pins and brooches, which is what drew me to them in the first place. From the iconic Disney designs, through Alice in Wonderland and Frankenstein’s monster and his bride to the classical retro designs, they offer something for every taste.
As each piece is hand-cast, there are tiny differences in all of them, making each a unique piece to add to your jewellery collection. And who doesn’t like to feel special?
The Retro Raven sent me some of their most iconic designs. A yellow Disney D letter, which, I am sure, is a must have for every Disney fan
And speaking of Disney, their blue Alice in Wonderland set is just a dream! And it even has tiny flowers embedded inside the resin!
This Tiki head is just begging for a tropical summer outfit! I can’t wait to pair it with all my summer outfits!
I intentionally left the best for the last.
These earrings are so amazingly glamorous while still having that perfect pinup vibe! The purple glitter is so rich, and the design so timeless, that they immediately became one of my favourite pieces of jewellery.
