The amazing color of this wing makes for a spectacular real butterfly necklace. Its eye catching bright yellow is well defined by the jet black veins that detail this wing. The species that this comes from is Troides Aeacus, though it is better known as a "Golden Birdwing". It is a member of the Papilionidae family and its native habitat ranges from India into China and south through Malaysia and Indonesia. Carefully handcrafted by myself here at Studio9ten, I have sandwiched this section 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 pendants measurements are 7/8" wide by 1 1/8" tall, making for a quaint but noticeable charm. It comes on an 18 inch 1.5mm black leather cord with a small chain extension and an easy to use lobster clasp. Bright and vivid, this real butterfly necklace has a simple touch of eloquence about it.
