This whimsical butterfly is painted in iridescent shades of blue and purple with black accents for contrast. It was entirely hand crafted using excellent quality tooling leather, which was hand cut, carved, dyed and painted before being sealed with a protective top coat. The colors were hard to capture in these photos – these are shimmering hues of deep purple and indigo, with black accents. They are dark, but vibrant tones that come alive in the light.
The butterfly’s body is accented with a beautiful black metal filigree, which adds some nice texture and interest to the piece.
The exterior measurements are about 4.25″ wide by 3.75″ high. It fastens with a quality French clip barrette with the words “Made in France” stamped on the back.
