Butterflies

These beautifully embroidered and hand-painted brooches have landed in our gift shop and online. They closely resemble real Butterflies and form part of a collection of eight British Butterfly brooches.

The lifelike detailed craftsmanship of these three-dimensional pieces make them look as if they have gently landed on you.  An eye catching statement piece worn on a lapel, scarf, pashmina, hat or adorn your home with them on a lampshade, voile curtain or cushion. These could be worn to compliment (or instead of) flowers on lapels at a wedding or attached to wrist corsages.

Handmade in England from embroidered and hand-painted textiles with wire antennae.

Each Butterfly measures roughly 9cm x 6cm. Presented in a 9cm square gift box with information about the butterfly and the artist on the reverse.

Due to the hand-crafted nature of the brooch, some very slight variations in size or colour may occur.

The eight British Butterflies that are available…

Painted Lady, Red Admiral, Peacock, Common Blues, Tortoiseshell, Purple Emperor, Swallowtail and Marbled White.

“Brilliant, in many ways. I love embroidery, so thought this would just be interesting to see, but found it was incredibly informative not just about individual Quakers but how much they have done in our society.”

Well worth the entrance fee for the educational aspects alone!
