The eye catching color of this real butterfly necklace gives it a captivating presence. Its bright orange wings feature faint black veins that give it subtle detail. This gentle species name is Appias Nero but it is better known as the "Orange Albatross". It is a member of the Pieridae family which can naturally be found primarily in Indonesia. I have preserved this butterfly by encasing it in several layers of hand painted resin, following its flowing form to create a very natural appeal. 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 somewhat as it turns the butterfly semi-transparent producing an effect much like stained glass. The wing span of this enchanting beauty is only 2 3/4", making for a charming presence. This pendant comes on an 18" 1.5mm black leather cord with a small chain extension and an easy to use lobster clasp. Quite simply a natural beauty, you will enjoy when people ask if it is a real butterfly.
