Common Lime Butterfly
Dare to be naturally beautiful with this Real Butterfly Necklace. With its clear moments, mellow browns and rich patterns this would be sure to go with any earth tones that you may wear. This lovely species is rather widespread throughout the world. Its Latin name is Papilio Demoleus but it is better known as a "Common Lime Butterfly", as it likes to snack on limes. I have preserved this butterfly in several layers of hand painted resin, following its form for a more natural appeal. The resin that I use is clear so what you see are the true colors of the butterfly. Also, the resin has the wonderful effect of turning the butterfly semi-transparent giving it an appeal much like stained glass. The wing span on this little beauty is 2 3/4" and it comes on an 18 inch 1.5mm black leather cord with a small chain extension and an easy to use lobster clasp. When you decide to wear it and your friends will ask, they will be blown away when you tell them it is a real butterfly.
