This real butterfly necklace is simply a quiet beauty. While the main color of this wing is a minty soft blue, it is the "eye spots" with golden browns, white specks and subdued blacks that steal the show. The butterfly that this comes from is a species known as "Morpho Catenarius". It is a member of the nymphalidae family and is natively found in Brazil. 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 finish with Lead Free Solder. This pendants measurements are 1 1/8" X 1 1/8", making for quite a pleasant statement. It comes on an 18 inch 1.5mm black leather cord with a small chain extension and an easy to use lobster clasp. Simple in its design, this real butterfly necklace has a touch of elegance with a peaceful charm.
