Magic on the Wing Necklace
Few things are more summery OR more magical than butterflies. My family and I have been enjoying their company for several years now. We are intentional about planting preferred forage species in our garden, so that monarchs, painted ladies, and other butterflies will have the habitat they need after their long journeys.
I created this one of a kind, artisanal pendant to pay homage to these magical winged spirits. It features a hand-pierced swallowtail butterfly which I've soldered to a super sturdy, hand-textured heavy gauge sterling silver disc. The design is completed with a sweet 14 karat yellow gold accent reclaimed from some old jewelry passed down to me by a friend. The pendant is suspended from the prettiest chain ever - a long and short cable chain which features diamond and oval shapes. Oxidized satin finish for an old world feel. Necklace length is 16 inches from end to end - intended to sit on your collarbone. Finished with a spring ring. Your reminder to let your spirit free - life is short and the future is uncertain!
All handcrafted using traditional silversmithing techniques, with my own two hands and a lot of heart and soul. Each North Star Silver order comes lovingly packaged and ready for gift-giving. I use GOTS-certified organic cotton jewelry bags and/or 100% post consumer recycled kraft jewelry boxes with natural cotton filling. All orders come with a complimentary polish pad.
