Marquetry Monarch Butterfly Pin and Brooch made from Aspen and Wenge Wood

Like this item?

Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.


• Aspen and Wenge wood.
• Protective coating
• 1.5x2.25 inches (3.81x5.72 cm)
• Convertible brooch has a silver-finished steel c-clasp closure with a bail that allows piece to be worn as a brooch or hung from a chain or cord as a pendant.

In early April Monarch's began fluttering into my backyard of Minnesota and a few sketches emerged as finished wood inlays a few months later. I chose aspen wood for the base and wenge as the inlay for its rich dark color. Each piece of wood that I use has it's own grain pattern making each monarch a little different. I like to preserve as much color and pattern to the wood that I can. To represent brilliant orange color of monarchs an orange dye was applied to the aspen wood.

I also make custom orders to your specifications if you send me a message. Thank you :)

Super fun to put together with my son! He absolutely loves it and gets compliments from people of all ages! Easy to download directions and even came with a bit of sandpaper. All you need is some good glue.
