It's an itsy bitsy, teeny weeny, gold and sterling monarch thing-y :)
I love a challenge, and making hinges on this scale is just that- challenging! But so much fun and the result is this darling little pendant!
Tiny etched monarch butterfly with two layers of 24K gold fused to the silver via an ancient technique called Keum Boo. On an oxidized and beaded sterling and 14K gold fill chain with handmade clasp. The hinges mean the wings will gently move, sometimes open, sometimes shut as you wear it.
Pendant is just over a 1/2" wide when wings are open and less than 1" long
