This Multi-Coloured Butterfly Brooch is bright and beautiful. The top half consists of pink and purple shades while the bottom half is bright orange, black and white like the Monarch Butterfly. It is hand crafted by Wanda Shum. Wanda Shum is a Canadian Artist from British Columbia. The butterfly pins as well as her pendants and earrings are fashioned by using Polymer Clay, which is a kind of modeling clay, which can be hardened in an oven. It is similar to PVC. The artist can then form the clay into a variety of spectacular patterns and shapes, with vivid colours. The butterfly pin is modelled and shaped with polymer clay. This pretty brooch as well as all of Wanda Shum’s creations have designs on both the front and the back of the item.
Each Butterfly Brooch is unique and crafted by hand; therefore, none of them will be identical. They are crafted in Canada.
Wanda Shum works in polymer clay using a technique called Millefiori. Strips of different shapes and colours of polymer clay are shaped into canes. The canes when cut reveal magnificent colours and patterns and they are then carefully applied and sculpted into exquisite brooches, pins and various other unique, one of a kind “works of art”.
