Karin Johansson
An ever growing collection showing more than 100 brooches in the form of butterflies.

Butterflies are symbols with multiple meanings: It is double with its symmetric form and has throughout history, several meanings about death, rebirth, soul, freedom, life and beauty. The butterfly can also be a symbol of collecting.

All the brooches are individuals. Cut out by hand they show variations, all have their own form, surface and expression. Variety and unique individuals form a rich diversity. The butterflies are made of thin sheets of gold and oxidized silver, some of them coloured by enamel.
