This handmade, Butterfly Necklace is organic by design and so symbolic. For centuries, butterflies were demonstrative of transformation through the metamorphosis from caterpillar to the glorious butterfly. This in many ways mirrors our lives with changes we've made in our personal growth. This Sterling Silver necklace could be the inspiration for you or someone you love to continue striving or someone who has achieved the transformation they were working towards!
I made this rustic, Silver charm from Precious Metal Clay that was sculpted and formed before firing it in my kiln for hours. When it is complete, it too "transforms" into something new - solid, Sterling Silver!
I added a coil bail and artistic touches with the three handmade beads at the base of the bail. I lightly oxidized the surface of the charm to patina and darken the low points to enhance the image of this glorious butterfly.
The chain is Sterling Silver and also is oxidized to compliment the charm. The length shown in the photos is 16", however since all of my Woods and Willow pieces are made to order, I can make this any length you want from the variation menu.
Transform yourself or congratulate someone who is striving for change with this artisan crafted Sterling Silver butterfly necklace!
