These amazingly lovely insects are the creation of the wonderful Mister Finch, who makes each one by hand from both new and rescued and/or recycled fabrics, though he prefers to use older materials not only for ethical reasons but because he feels "they have a story built in from the beginning." The beautiful detail and workmanship in his pieces are a tribute to his background in editorial fashion prop making — he's worked on everything from editorial jewelry to wedding bouquets. Mister Finch's insects are available exclusively through Atelier Abigail Ahern in London, but you can purchase other lovely creations by him from his etsy shop here. I'd love to display one of these in a shadow box or bell jar — or wear one as an accessory!
