I love watching butterflies and it's always exciting spotting a 'new' one. Their beautiful patterns and graceful movements inspired me to make a series of embroidered brooches. This one is inspired by the chequered blue butterfly.
My butterfly brooches are made almost completely of thread: I ‘draw’ onto water-soluble fabric with my sewing machine, creating an interlocking network of thousands of stitches, choosing my colours to best capture the spirit of the butterfly. The fabric is then washed away leaving a delicate looking but surprisingly tough thread butterfly. I add wire and bead antennae and a brooch back to complete my piece. Each piece I make is unique and created with care and love.
This brooch measures around 7 x 8 cm.
I love sitting in the garden with a cup of tea watching the butterflies flutter around the flowers. They look so fragile and delicate and yet can withstand our great British weather and all the other challenges life throws at them. I love their patterns and colours, sometimes subtle, sometimes bold but always beautiful!
