More about this digital file


The vivid colours of butterfly wings contrast beautifully with sparse outlines in these two elegant studies.

Stitched with stranded cotton and glossy rayon thread, the detached wings have wired outlines that enable them to be shaped into numerous positions.

Choose from gently clasped hands with a vibrant black and red butterfly, braided hair with pearls and a green and black butterfly or select colours to work your own favourite butterfly.
