hand painted and embroidered fabric brooch - white tailed bumble bee by vikki lafford garside


hand painted and embroidered fabric brooch - white tailed bumble bee by vikki lafford garside

The intricate detail of this fascinating insect is captured in this brooch. The natural mellow colours 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 black faux suede and velvet and embroidered and painted in yellow and white to create the real life texture of the White Tailed Bumblebee.

This stylish White Tailed Bumblebee brooch has a three-dimensional look and makes a 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? The brooch comes presented in a gift box. 

These bees occur over much of the world but are most common in temperate climates. White Tailed Bumblebees are robust and velvety, average about 1.5 to 2.5 cm in length, and are usually black with broad yellow or orange bands with a white tail. They often nest in the ground, commonly in deserted bird or mouse nests.

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.

Materials: fabric, wire

Size: W: 6cm, H: 4cm
