Our Creative Space...


Mariposa : Any insect of the family lepidoptera.
This is all the information to be had about butterflies in this spanish encyclopedie from 1934. But what it lacks in the info department is made good by this beautiful litho.
It was all we needed for our new project involving old silverware that may be from 1934 as well!



Wire, lace, gauze and old findings put together will give us some very special lepidoptera indeed...




The old silverware have amazing details. We'll show you the end results soon!

  7. So creative. I love how the spoon matches the theme of each butterfly. The silk roses are spectacular!
