This real butterfly necklace is simply precious. This tiny butterfly originates from Peru with the Latin name of Diaethria Clymena but is better known as "Kluges 88", named for the markings on its bottom wings. The front side is striking with its bold colors of black, white and red. But it is also totally reversible with its black and iridescent blue back side. 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 finish with Lead Free Solder. This pendant measures 1 1/8" tall by 2 1/8" wide making for an unusual 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. Although simple in its presentation, I guarantee that it will bring you plenty of attention when you wear your real butterfly necklace.
