Gorgeous little thing, I can't wait to give it to my little girl. Definitely go large if it is for an adult. The small is perfect for my little one.

I am very satisfied, the butterfly pins are beautiful
Blending fabrics with imagination!
I turned a 180 degrees away from museum science collections and embraced the world of textiles! Taking a pretty piece of fabric and turning it into a three-dimensional wearable piece of art makes my heart go all a flutter.
It's fascinating to me combining the beauty of silk fabric with the intricate folding technique of origami. As a kid, my mother introduced me to origami as an activity to keep me entertained during a family summer vacation. I found it intriguing to take a boring piece of paper and turn it into an animal! I was hooked on origami.
I take great pride in sewing each silk origami butterfly, one at a time. By offering 100 different colors of silk, I am able to provide my customers with a one of a kind piece of fiber art that is unique to their personal taste.
Offered in 3 different sizes with the additional options of Swarovski crystals or pearls, as well as lace, I am able to customize every butterfly. That is what keeps this whole process fresh for me. When I personally work with each customer I see their own taste reflected in their custom request, and I take great pride in offering them a quality handmade item.
Custom orders are my specialty. I frequently work with custom bridal orders, and custom requests to match formal wear...or for a well deserved unbirthday gift!
Owner, Designer, Maker, Sewer, Shipper, Marketing...you Name It!
Living on a couple acres of land tucked into the hills of the east bay across from San Francisco, I pull from nature to inspire my creations. You will see my passion for textiles transform into beauty when you hold your own custom origami butterfly!
