The Butterfly and Toadstool


Dee Leslie is a designer, maker & dreamer with a passion for nature and the living world. She studied Animal Biology & Conservation at Edinburgh Napier University and graduated with a BSc (Hons) in 2009. She worked in conservation and on an endangered species breeding program for a number of years before completely changing tracks and going full-time with her own handmade business.

Dee’s love of nature and the world around her now plays a vital role as the inspiration for all her botanical jewellery pieces. She takes great care of the plants and flowers that she grows in her Scottish garden for her jewellery pieces. She carefully hand-picks and carefully dries each one so she really does know the “roots” of her work!

Dee also makes nature inspired jewellery pieces using natural, recycled and sustainable materials.

Handmade in Newton Stewart, Wigtownshire, Scotland.
