Little Yellow Orange Tip
This enchanting real butterfly necklace is really quite adorable. Its brightly colored wings feature a brilliant yellow and orange that is well defined by a hushed black that outline its edges. This charming species name is Ixias Pyrene but it is commonly referred to as a "Little Yellow Orange Tip". It is a member of the Pieridae family which can be found natively in India. With a delicate hand, I have encased this butterfly in several layers of hand painted resin, following its flowing form to create a very natural appearance. The resin that I use is clear so what you see are the natural colors of the butterfly. Though the resin does transmute the colors slightly as it turns the wings semi-transparent giving it an appeal very much like stained glass. The wing span of this gentle beauty is only 2 1/4", making for quite a dainty presence. This lovely pendant comes on an 18" 1.5mm black leather cord with a small chain extension and an easy to use lobster clasp. Delightful to the eye, this sweet little butterfly is simply a darling to behold.
