Hello,

So I'm trying to find a reproduction of a Kite Brooch, anyone have any idea who makes them?

The only one i know who could have the knowledge to make them is Raymond the Quiet

Kite broches are rare.
I'd recommend bossed pennanular - much easier to buy.

Have a word with Bob Davies www.vikingswords.net if you have a picture or source he could probably do you a bespoke piece.

I second Bob Davies. His work is much better and true to size. I have several of his pieces and many from Raymond. Raymonds cost much less but the scale is off. On the other hand Raymond's are very affordable. I have been looking for many years and have not found any lower cost versions.
