Etsy picks of the week – Vintage butterflies

I love vintage butterfly ephemera and have quite a few brooches from the 1930s in my collection. I also like fabrics printed with or featuring them in beads etc. My Nana Violet had a butterfly brooch and I always adored it as a kid, so I think that is when my desire for them began. Here are some lovely examples of papillion jewellery (and butterfly related items) from the 20s and 30s for sale on Esty this week. I wish I could have them all!
