With the promise of Summer in the air, butterflies have begun to make a happy return to the flowers in my little walled garden. Directly inspired by these welcome flighty visitors I have created a jewellery collection of earrings, pendants and rings.
To begin with I trace an outline of a butterfly on to a sheet of solid gold, or sterling silver, and then each individual shape is cut by hand with my jewellers’ saw.
To capture the never ending flapping of their wings, I give the butterflies a slight bend in their wings, which helps to capture the light, so they ‘flutter’ when they are worn.
