I have been making a butterfly garland today, with 5 of the most common butterflies in the UK.
I thought about making some into brooches. I was searching for others, but didn’t find many actually based on real butterflies.
If you were looking for a butterfly brooch, would the colour be the most important thing, or do you look for something that resembles a actual butterfly.
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
Forgot to add a photo of the kind of thing I have been making!
Butterflies with random colours and patterns are nice but I would be more drawn to a realistic looking butterfly. It might be a favourite butterfly or one often seen on country walks that catches a customers eye. Maybe you could mention the butterflies preferred flower or where they can be found in your marketing info. I really like the ones in the pic above, the orange tip is my fave
I’d prefer one that was realistic and based on actual look and colours.
Thanks for your ideas, the orange tip is my favourite as well. I always look out for it in the garden in the spring. I will get making!
I love your butterflies, very contemporary and vibrant
I’ve been making some pyrographed drawer knobs with butterflies on and personally, I love the fascinating variety of real butterflies (and moths!) that we get in this country. Much prefer that to generic ‘butterfly’ images and I’m afraid I make what pleases me rather than what might or might not please others. That probably explains why I don’t sell much
I’ve just had a look at your drawer knobs, they are gorgeous.
