Five Bar Swordtail
The bold patterns of this real butterfly wing necklace truly make this pendant quite eye catching. It features, on a milky white background, hints of lime green and golden yellow with a fascinating pattern of subdued black throughout. This exotic species name is Graphium Antiphates but it is commonly referred to as a "Five Bar Swordtail". It is a member of the Papilionidae family which can be found natively in southern Asia. I have sandwiched this choice selection of wing between two pieces of glass that I have cut by hand. Then using copper foil I hold it all together so that I can skillfully finish with Lead Free Solder. This intriguing pendants measurements are 5/8" wide by 1 1/8" tall, making for a interesting statement. It comes on an 18 inch 1.5mm black leather cord with a small chain extension and an easy to use lobster clasp. An excellent example of fine craftsmanship, you will surely enjoy examining this butterfly wings fine details.
