SK #CAPE Made For Each Other (Small)


“The butterfly is a flying flower,
The flower a tethered butterfly”.
~Ponce Denis Écouchard Lebrun

A butterfly's goal in life is nectar, nectar and more nectar. So where do you find butterflies? Anywhere you find flowers. Simple - but what a breathtakingly beautiful symbiosis. An explosion of felted blooms conceals Textile Designer Suneetha/Bhaavana's exquisite floral creation of ribbon work and felted passementerie. A peek inside reveals swirls of butterflies as the flowers take flight. Jewelry designer Ronda Terry's kiln-forged button of bejeweled and enameled copper discs completes the vision.

Poised and waiting dawn's pure light,
Flowers soar in joyous flight . . .
