Also available in Gatekeeper Brown & Apollo Silver


  • Working with our patina artist Derek Bayley we have created 3 unique pieces of art inspired by the butterfly.
  • The Adonis is a beautiful bronze plate that has been intensively and intricately crafted by Derek and Alice in their London studios' over 7 days.
  • Inspired by the Adonis, a butterfly in the family Lycaenidae, found in the Palearctic ecozone.
  • Informed by ancient patina techniques and oxidised through atmospheric exposure, the patina is expertly layered by hand to create the deep lustrous colours and finish. Words have been diamond-drag engraved to mark the moment, representing life, endurance, hope and change.
  • The Butterfly Collection is a representation of global unity and the challenging situation people around the world are going through.
  • It is a project that is close to our hearts, with 100% of profits being gifted to Cavell Nurses’ Trust and the Fashion & Textile Children’s Trust.
  • Crafted with passion, care and attention, these really are 1 of 1's as no two pieces of art can ever be the same. This is the wonderful beauty of the patina process.
