A beautiful framed Brimstone butterfly. The butterfly is made with layers of Liberty Tana Lawn and silk, cut and enhanced with free motion stitch to build up the intricate wing patterns. A final layer of shot organza gives his wings an iridescent glow.
Tiny sequins are added to attract the light and give his wings a shimmer in the light. He has a needle felted body with glass bead eyes and antennae of twisted paper.
He is mounted on a vintage map of Wales, which is where he can be found in his natural habitat, with a stitched linen label stating his Latin name.
Framed and glazed in a bespoke black wooden frame with a 2.5cm depth, the whole piece has a lovely vintage feel, measuring 25cm by 25 cm.
Commissioning a piece of work is really exciting – it is a chance to have something made especially for you and an opportunity to really engage in the creative process.
Perhaps you need accessories to go with a particular outfit or a piece of furniture to fit a specific space in your home. We can work with you to design something truly unique. You’ll be able to discuss your ideas, likes and dislikes with the Maker and together create a piece of craft, handmade for you.
This is just a first step, so don't worry, there’ll be plenty of chances to discuss details before finalising a commission.
