Window Display | Sotheby's Diamonds, London.

September, 2018.

I was commissioned to create an installation of yellow paper butterflies to surround a display of diamond jewellery. The butterflies had to be completely yellow so I adapted the patterns from real species of butterfly to create their different shapes and produce a pattern I could embroider into the wings. They were mounted on wires to give the effect of them floating around the jewellery. 

 

After the success of creating the butterflies, I was asked to create a wreath of paper winter flora and floating paper birds to adorn the window through the Christmas period. I filled the wreath with snow drops, Anemones and ferns and carved Robins and Gold finches from paper, embroidering their wings to add colour and texture.
