Fluttery Fascinated

I am completely fascinated by butterflies. When I am not designing wearable fiber art or tiny boxes or seasonal snowflakes I turn my attention to patterns of butterflies. They amaze me with their fresh aloofness and graceful flitting. They feel like silk and look like jewels. Absolutely fragile and precious and easy. It’s not hard to be in love with butterflies.

This past summer, while spending the day at the Blue Heron Art Gallery, I found a stunning and completely intact Monarch on the ground. I have kept it in a box so I can continue to enjoy it. The wings are so soft you cannot feel them. The color so vibrant it is hard to believe. Beautiful.
Abagail is my original design. In black and gold she is remarkable. The metal box she adorns is 4 1/4″ by 3 1/8″. She is on display at the Blue Heron.
