This is a necklace that I made from a real, ethically sourced Monarch butterfly that had the classic orange wing parts removed to be upgraded with the flashing blue wings of the Amazing BLUE MORPHO!!!..to create a hybrid Monarch butterfly that can only exist here or in our imaginations.
I encased this gorgeous wing between two pieces of hand cut, hand ground glass and finished with lead-free silver solder (tin,copper,and sterling silver) Necklace chain is 18" ( or specify desired length) sterling silver plated (nickel and lead-free) and a lobster clasp. The wing measures 3 1/4 " long ( including jump ring) by 2 1/2".
The back of the pendant is made of artisan glass.
Tropical butterfly/moth pieces or the occasional wing are leftovers obtained through trade from a friend/artist and then reused here.
All native butterflies or moths I use in my jewlery are either found by me already deceased or given to me as such by friends or family. Please allow for some very minor imperfections in the wing as this will always be the byproduct of a once free-flying, happy butterfly!
I accept paypal and major credit cards. Once I receive payment your order will be promptly created and then shipped.
All jewelry pieces are shipped in a small jewelry box cushioned with batting and are sent in a small bubble wrap envelope to keep costs down for you. If you would prefer the item to be gift wrapped or sent in a small flat rate priority box then let me know and I would be happy to do so.
Terrariums are shipped in 200 lb. test new boxes, wrapped in Kraft paper and string and then generously bubble wrapped. Terrariums are guaranteed only if broken during shipping. Please send a picture of broken terrarium in the box.
-I will be happy to repair any minor damage to the solder on the jewelry or earring hooks only. Butterfly wings will be damaged if I try to replace the glass.
