This real butterfly necklace is truly a classic beauty. Its tiny wings contain an interesting pattern that features deep reds, golden yellows, somber blacks plus a hint of iridescence within its spots and near its edges. The reverse side is quite remarkable too as it offers a bold black background with splashes of red and brilliant iridescent blue markings. This amazing specimens name is Callicore Hystaspes, it is a member of the Nymphalidae family that can be natively found in the tropical rainforests of 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 unconventional and eye catching shape. It comes on an 18 inch 1.5mm black leather cord with a small chain extension and an easy to use lobster clasp. Being completely reversible, you will have fun deciding which side best suits your fashion statement of the day.
