In 2019 we celebrated the birth of our twins

On 28 February 2019 we welcomed our twins Luna India and Miles David Westcott to the world.

Miles (Left) and Luna (right) were born on the 28th of February 2019 via emergency c-section at 35 weeks weighing 2.5 and 2.3 kgs respectively

It came as quite a shock and surprise to find out that we were expecting twins, as it was a natural pregnancy and we have no known history of twins in our families.

Lunar Miles  A unit of astronomy used the calculate the distance from the center of the earth to the center of the moon.

I quickly realised that the twins and my 5 year old son would be a full-time commitment for some time. As Papillon Belle is a part time passion project of mine and I am personally involved in all aspects of the business (from production, to marketing and distribution), I decided to take a hiatus so I could focus on my family. So as Papillon Belle prepared to enter its chrysalis phase, two new little butterflies were about to emerge.

It was a difficult pregnancy and the twins arrived a month early, but I am grateful for the time I got to spend with them as they have grown into two beautiful, healthy little people.

Little Luna was named after one of my absolute favourites.. the ethereal beauty of the Actias Luna (Moon Moth) has always fascinated me. One day I will design a necklace especially for her 🦋

What’s next for Papillon Belle?

In order to continue balancing my work and family life, I will be simplifying my offering and only create a small selection of pieces every year. I will also be reducing the amount of butterflies I source, so this means that the butterflies I have available may not become available again once they are sold out.
