Wild Butterflies

Butterflies are one of my favourite insects. They hold a personal story and symbolism of staying aware and being present in the world. My childhood back garden and the surrounding fields attracted many different types of butterflies, including the Swallowtail, Peacock, Red Admiral, Large White, Painted Lady and the Brimstone. Often the Large White and the Brimstone butterflies would fly in pairs. I've seen many beautiful butterflies in Hampstead Heath and imagine being in an enchanted forest where butterflies of all varieties and shades are present. I have sculpted the endangered species of the Monarch and the Queen Alexandra’s Birdwing, the largest butterfly in the world. Through our Naturers initiative, one of our core focuses is on conservation, and restoring forests so wildlife can thrive.

Symbolism: The butterfly has a deep reverence and symbolism for many concepts in life, as a representation of change, renewal, hope, endurance, and courage to embrace the transformation we travel through in different stages of life. Wearing butterflies will bring you courage and hope through these adventures.

Fact: Monarchs and The Queen Alexandra’s Birdwing butterflies are threatened by deforestation and habitat loss caused by climate change, and the loss of native plants along their migratory corridors. Butterfly wings are transparent and they use their feet to taste.
