Inspired by a summer butterfly landing gently on a Buddleia tree blossom. Reminiscent of my childhood spent in my nana’s ‘Butterfly tree’.
Semi-Precious Gemstones: Agate, jade and Czech glass.
Metal: Solid copper wire with a patina finish polished to reveal the warm coppery tones beneath. The copper has been hand painted with a durable gloss varnish.
Hoop Material: Copper plated steel.
Hang: Metal flex wire.
Hoop Diameter: 17.7cm / 7 inches.
After Care: Copper is the softest of metals and will patina over time. Each copper wire work piece will stand up to normal everyday use as the soft metal has been work-hardened, however if you handle it roughly it will get squashed. If in time the copper becomes dull, you can restore the glossy shine with a jeweller’s polishing cloth or mechanical polishing. The copper can then be resealed with a metal varnish, you are welcome to contact designer Nicola who offers a ‘copper re-sealing service’.
