Moths found in the bush & trapped inside the house - some were rescued and released.  Made using salvaged copper sheet and wire, brass and some recycled sterling silver.  All works are handcut, filed, embossed to create unique texture and heat-treated with flame to create a rustic effect.  Each piece is fully sealed with copper sealer.
