Look what I finished the other day! This cloisonné enamel butterfly used to be mounted on a backer board in a frame. Now it’s on a hand-carved acrylic comb! Much easier to show off now.

I’m incredibly pleased with how it turned out and how it looks exactly the way I intended it to when worn. (modeled on the head of yours truly). Not sure when it’s going to be up for general sale, but I’ll happily entertain offers immediately. I’ll be making a custom fitted case for this piece, too.
