Last night I was fascinated by a documentary on the migration of Monarch butterflies from Mexico to North America.
Those wonderful images have inspired this creation.
It is like a cluster of monarch butterflies, hanging to rest to the branch of a tree, after a long long journey…
I choose butterfly images from real pictures and vintage illustrations. Then I print them on high quality silk organza, hand-cut one by one and seal edges to prevent fabric fraying.
Please pay attention when you wear the necklace. It is very delicate. Don’t stretch butterflies.
Butterflies can’t be washed but they are waterproof. However don’t spray perfume over them.
There are over 25 bright orange Monarch butterflies and wings on this necklace, and each one measure from 5 to 11 cm.
Antique bronze (or silver) chain is long about 45 cm (18 inches) with frontal chain of 14 cm where butterflies are hanged, with lobster clasp. Nickel free.
I can also customize your necklace as you prefer! Convo me before to buy!
I’ll ship the necklace gift wrapped, for you or your loved one.
