This specimen box contains eighteen specimens - ten moths and eight butterflies- from the order Lepidoptera. Jane's aim was to produce a specimen box of 'Jewels", with complete disregard for size and proportion: to selected moth and butterfly specimens for interest and colour-not the most familiar and to use a wide assortment of materials to interpret these insects. This brief provided Jane with the opportunity to employ a variety of techniques to work the detached wings, from surface embroidery in lustrous silks for the Indian Moon Moth, to hand dyed silk fabric for the purple fucshia butterfly and even to try stitching clear plastic for the Glasswing Butterfly.
