Michelle Stitzlein's beautiful butterfly sculptures are made from recycled materials. At first glance you may think that they are small pieces of jewelry. No, these moths and butterflies have a massive wingspan of approximately 11 feet. See the image with people viewing a hanging piece for perspective.
Stitzlein repurposes items such as car parts, bottle caps, licence plates, plumbing hardware, oil drum lids, and piano keys to build the sculptures. I noticed the blue moth has bent bicycle handlebars as antennae, and she has used headlights on the stunning silver one for its feelers.
