My interpretation of the British butterfly a Large Blue, made as a brooch.
The wingspan of this piece is 11cm; she is made in layers of silk, organza and Liberty of London prints.
Each part of the wing is embroidered with free motion stitching; parts of the pattern are cut away to reveal what’s underneath, creating depth and shade.
Her body is needle-felted from pure wool; she has antennae of hemp string and tiny pearl eyes. I add, by hand, tiny beads and micro sequins to catch the light.
The Large Blue comes nestled in her very own specimen box.

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.
