This little pendant is etched with the pattern of a Monarch butterfly. The back of the pendant reads a line from Rumi
"If light is in your heart, you will find your way home"
I find this quote so perfect for the Monarch, which makes the long journey south each Autumn to its overwintering grounds in Mexico. They roost in Oyamel fir trees which are only found in a few locations in Mexico.
I can't think of a better creature to represent both the fragility and impermanence of our time on this planet, as well as our inherent resillience and ability to take on great challenges.
Small etched bi metal (sterling and brass) monarch on an oxidized and beaded 18" sterling silver chain with handmade clasp. Measures just about 1" wide and 1" long including bail.
