This real butterfly necklace is simply bold and striking. It's front has an interesting pattern that contains strong reds, soft yellows, touches of white and iridescent blueish green markings on a solid black background. The reverse is rather remarkable as well with its pinkish reds and vibrant iridescent blues set on a sea of black. This unusual butterflies name is Callicore Hesperis and it is a member of the nymphalidae family that is native to South America. I have sandwiched the wings of this butterfly between two pieces of glass that I cut by hand. Then using copper foil I hold it all together so that I can skillfully finish with Lead Free Solder. This pendant measures 1 1/8" tall by 2 1/8" wide making for an unique and interesting shape. It comes on an 18 inch 1.5mm black leather cord with a small chain extension and an easy to use lobster clasp. A compelling and unusual beauty, with this real butterfly necklace you will be sure to stand out from the crowd.
