I've always delighted in butterflies, but my butterfly obsession started in earnest the summer of 2018, when I raised my first 5 monarchs.  Starting from a teeny tiny caterpillar, feeding on milkweed until they formed a jade green chrysalis, and then the incredible process of metamorphosing into a vibrant orange butterfly!  The process is an absolute joy to witness and be a part of, and has influenced my work ever since.

A sterling silver pendant, etched with a Monarch butterfly pattern on it's wings. 

The body of the monarch is rosecut sapphire, green as a fresh milkweed leaf!

The wings are hinged on the back of the stone, giving the butterfly subtle movement on the neck.

A handmade hook and eye clasp on a round cable chain completes this necklace!
