This brooch is perfect for any butterfly fan. It has been lovingly illustrated and designed to be made into a Hungry Designs brooch. Inspired by our trip to Scotland where we saw one of these incredible butterflies in person, it has been drawn and coloured by Hungry Designs' very own Amanda Whitelaw and cannot be found anywhere else.
Quick Brooch rundown:
Glasswing Butterfly Brooch - 6.5cm tall (from tip of wing to foot of leaf)
Engraved and laser cut acrylic
Hand painted engraving
8 pieces glued together - Hand Painted Transparent Amber, Mirrored Acrylic, Green Acrylic and Clear Acrylic backing
Hook brooch back
Laser cut, glued and painted by hand, it's the perfect brooch for your butterfly loving pal or loved one. The whole brooch has been hand painted and then sandwiched between acrylic to give the illusion of the wings being glass.
Securely attached to the back is a large hinged brooch back. The brooch measures 6.5cm tall and looks fantastic attached to a bag, jacket, cardi or hat. Please note that the brooch looks best pinned on a light coloured top, this makes the painted butterfly really stand out!
Every brooch is slightly different and contain little air bubbles in the wings but we really think this adds to the uniqueness of this brooch. These air bubbles can rarely be seen when wearing and only obvious when holding the brooch up to direct light.
This brooch is made from 8 pieces of acrylic that have been sandwiched together using industrial strength glue. The facing acrylic is backed onto clear acrylic. The acrylic has been hand painted with 2 coats of matte acrylic paint by Amanda of Hungry Designs.
It doesn't mind a wee spot of rain, but please don't forget to remove it from clothing before putting the item in the washing. It doesn't look anywhere near as cute when it's wet.
