About

Creations and Curiosities from the hands of Anita Baills.

High quality handmade jewellery and designs, showcasing the true beauty of nature as well as bespoke whimsical pieces. Specialising in REAL butterfly, insect and snake shed jewellery. All handmade in Toowoomba QLD.

All natural items are ethically sourced and produced in accordance with environmental legislation and licensing. The beauty of nature is carefully preserved and showcased in a way that will make these products treasured pieces.

I am constantly inspired by the beauty in the world around me, the colours, patterns and designs are so intricate and amazing!
I firmly believe that while we cannot fully replicate the beauty of nature, it can be recycled and manipulated to be made into unique and cherished pieces.

The work I do with real butterfly wings in particular has a very special meaning for me, not just because of their symbol of transformation. At my mothers funeral I had ordered 5 butterflies (one for each of her children) to release at the graveside service. Upon release, a sixth butterfly, with a broken wing, fluttered out and flew under the casket. Later in the service as the casket was slowly lowered it fluttered out from underneath and flew off into the sky. It was such a fitting symbol of my Mum’s broken body and her new life in heaven.


If you like what I do and want to be kept up to date with the latest creations, make sure to follow me on Facebook.

    Beauty born out of darkness... my artistic journey grew from a difficult time in my life and soon helped light the dark days. My mind constantly drifts and wanders to new ideas and I love creating using items direct from nature itself.
