The Butterfly Conservatory – An Upcycled Project

This piece was created using an old jewelry box. I stripped it, removed the glass, covered it in sewing paper, hand painted butterflies and other bugs on the exterior and filled the inside with natural moss, paper butterflies, handmade paperclay toadstools and ladybirds, and acorns and other natural goodies. Some of the butterflies are mounted on pins so they appear to be suspended in mid-air.
