Showcase the natural beauty of butterflies with this gorgeous necklace. The fleeting lives of the butterfly can be remembered and treasured in the high quality craftsmanship of this piece, great for afficianados of natural history!
This work is composed of very thin glass that encases a Blue Morpho Butterfly wing between soldered silver(oxidized to a dark but polished finish) using the Tiffany method. Both sides of the wing are on diplay.
Katie acquires her wings ethically from butterfly farms which support the natural population.
The Blue Morpho is more brilliant than words can describe. One of the largest butterflies, the blue iridescent color has a luscious metallic sheen that contrasts beautifully with the opposing brown side. This classic geometry of the triangle frames the shimmering blue in this necklace, catching the light with each movement.
