ON SALE: 50% OFF THE ORIGINAL PRICE OF $250

A bejeweled and winged brooch inspired by the opulent textiles of the French designer Paul Poiret, whose exotic clothing designs were the talk of Paris in the 1910's and 1920's...

The brooch is entirely hand-crocheted using the finest silk and cotton threads in a sumptuous palette of sapphire, azure, lapis, midnight black and peridot. The wings are dotted with hundreds of new and vintage glass beads--including Victorian-era "French Jet" disc beads--using the tambour embroidery technique. Similar to embroidering with a crochet hook, this technique was employed by Poiret and other couture houses of the era to apply the thousands of seed beads to delicate fabrics. The wings are also adorned with lapis lazuli stones, peridot, onyx, and sparkling Swarovski crystals. The thorax of the butterfly is a dramatic faceted nugget of rainbow fluorite, flanked on either side with faceted onyx stones. The antennae are beaded with vintage seed beads and finished off with Swarovski crystals. The butterfly's wingspan is 3.5" (8.9 cm) and its body measures 3"(7.6cm) in length.

The back of the pin is lined in vintage black velvet, stitched by hand, with a silver plated, 1.5" pin back. The design is signed by the artist with a hand-embroidered label and is as one-of-a-kind as a real butterfly.
