Hand painted and embroidered fabric brooch - common carder bee by Vikki Lafford Garside

The intricate detail of this fascinating insect is captured in this brooch. The natural mellow colors of this insect naturally blend into any style. This beautiful embroidered and hand-painted brooch closely resembles the real thing and is a unique additional to any outfit. The brooch is crafted in a ginger velvet with black detail to create the real life texture of the Bumblebee.

This stylish Bumblebee brooch has a three-dimensional look and makes modish statement pinned to a lapel, scarf or hat. It’s also a conversation piece in the home - why not attach one, or several, to cushions, curtains, even a lampshade? This is versatile gift for any nature lover.

This bumble bee is based on the Common Carder Bee. It is commonly found in gardens, woods, on heaths and on farmland. They are larger than honeybees, but they don't produce as much honey. However, they are very important pollinators.The brooch is made from layers of fabric, embroidered and painted to achieve colour and exquisite detail. It would look fabulous adorning a dress, jacket or jumper, trimming a hat, or adding a bright splash to your home décor on cushions or curtains.

The brooch comes presented in a decorative gift box. The reverse of the box has information about the butterfly and the brooch is held in the box with a tiny magnet, which makes a lovely display.

Essential info: Made from faux suede and cotton organdie with wire antennae, embroidered and hand-painted. Due to the hand-crafted nature of the brooch, some very slight variations may occur. It is quite flexible and robust and some bending of the wings is natural during wear. The wings can easily be reshaped by hand, either by flattening or by squeezing the top wings together to enhance the three-dimensional look. To keep the brooch in good condition, avoid submerging in water and subjecting to high temperatures or prolonged periods of direct sunlight.
