This set is consisting of three parts: the corset (completely made from beads, bottom halves of the cups are crocheted with Japanese beads size 15), necklace and bracelet. The idea of this set came to me while I was expecting a baby; and the experience of spring on the nature of my home city with hills, covered in thick snowdrifts, sparkling under the sun on the thin crust of ice over the snow with billions of snow “diamonds”, and a real miracle – butterflies flying among the snow, when not even one leaf bud on the trees began to unfold – showed me the exact image of this set. It has a deep sense of human’s closeness to Nature, combining the ideas of expectancy by a mother for her child and Mother Nature for spring. I wanted to accent the beauty of the expecting mother and the beauty of the snow-melting time with its clear thin delicate ice, sparkling snow and joyful spirit. The butterflies on the necklace and bracelet are also symbolic. They are forerunners of Spring’s Nascency: in their bodies- “souls” – they show up different manifestations of coming Spring (melting snow, dew drops, thawed patches, etc). These butterflies are very different, like snowflakes – you can never meet the same shape among others. In creation of this set I used my own methods working with tiniest antique and vintage beads in embroidery, making the embroidery look delicate and light like lace. The big butterfly from the necklace can be removed and used as a pendant separately or as a decorative part for a hair clasp.
