One of Britain's most elusive butterflies, the purple emperor brooch is a striking piece of wearable art, and will be quite the talking point!
In irridescent dark blue and maroon with splashes of white, the intricate markings of this beautiful butterfly are carefully captured in this artistic interpretation which has been painstakingly crafted from faux suede and cotton organdie, with wire antennae.
Measuring 8cm x 5cm, each brooch is presented in a gift box, if you can bear to give it away!
Due to the hand-crafted nature of the brooch, some very slight variations may occur. It is quite flexible and robust and some bending of the wings is natural during wear.
The wings can easily be reshaped by hand, either by flattening or by squeezing the top wings together to enhance the three-dimensional look. To keep the brooch in good condition, avoid submerging in water and subjecting to high temperatures or prolonged periods of direct sunlight.
