"Essence of Butterfly" is a book nook shelf insert and would look otherworldly nestled in between books about perfume, nature, butterflies, natural history, fairies, alchemy, sewing, Japan, Japenese Art, The Art of Tea or Art in general on your home bookshelf.

"She looked at her life one more time, took a deep breath and whispered, I'll never see you again."

This box is made in honor of the courage and beauty it takes for us to transform our lives.

Great changes are never easy, they often challenge every inch of our being--- but they also bring vast blessings.

When we make huge shifts within it may not make us more popular with certain people, but it will bring us something better--the ability to get closer to living the truth of our unique soul.

The freedom to live our best life.

I titled this box, "Essence of Butterfly" because I love the study of ancient alchemy and it contains a real salvaged butterfly wing I found; it's encased in resin and nestled within an antique apothecary bottle with a carved quartz bead for a top.

Butterflies have long been a symbol of the soul in ancient cultures. This hand made art box would be a meaningful gift for yourself or someone else who loves Japan, the art of sewing ( antique thread spools in this box) or needs a talisman of encouragement and strength to look at while striving to grow new wings. :) You got this.

Buy this box now for yourself to affirm your new life or give it to a friend who you want to encourage to unfurl their new wings.

I'm sure my words will be inaccurate to describe the magical feel of this piece. It is assembled with great care and I count myself fortunate to have it by me every day. While I couldn't resist and bought it for myself, something similar would make a marvelous gift.

I could not be happier with this beautiful work of art. So glad to have come across this shop. Unpacking the box was wonderful given the care with which it was packaged and the special note received from the artist. Thanks so much, Thea! We will treasure it forever.
