Let’s hear it for the moths!

As far as winged insects go, moths tend to be overlooked for their flashier, attention-seeking cousins, the butterflies. That is, until Kiara Spencer-Smith came along. On a spin around Sydney’s Australian Museum, she was struck by the dazzling array of moths Down Under – a few weeks later, a range of wooden brooches was born in their honour. Care for a bit more of a gander? Her Fringe Myrtle tidbits can be found at, with prices starting at $30.

Psst – this cool thing comes from the pages of the new frankie, aka issue 85. Nab a copy over this-a-way!
