Butterfly for Lejla

Lejla died at Utøya. The Youth Council (Ungdommens Fylkesråd i Østfold) she was a member of, held a dinner and gave this to her parents, along with a check for the foundation Leljas Stiftelse, to continue her work against discrimination. It was a pretty big event, on a local scale. I made this by hand out of silver, briar wood and finished it with gold plating. I was invited to join the dinner, and it was a very touching and emotional experience. I met her mother, she hugged me, and thanked me for making it. I can’t even begin to imagine how it must feel to have you child taken away like that. It was nice to be able to do something to brighten their day even just a little bit. følehorn   sommerfugl1  sommerfugl3 sommerfugl4 sommerfugl5 sommerfugl6 sommerfugl7 sommerfugl8 sommerfuglen9
