Would you like to stand out from the crowd? Then this gorgeous iridescent blue butterfly brooch is guaranteed to get you noticed! Based on the Morpho Helena, one of the many Blue Morpho species native to the rainforests of Latin America, this embroidered and hand-painted brooch is sure to be loved by anyone who loves these fluttering wonders.
The stunning metallic blue wings make Blue Morphos highly sought-after by collectors. There is concern for their future due to the gradual destruction of their rainforest habitat where land is cleared for crops and livestock pastures. This butterfly brooch celebrates the beauty of the Morpho without threatening their existence or causing them harm.
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 gift box.
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: 8cm, H: 6cm
