This real butterfly necklace is a well defined beauty. Its bold blacks outline every detail, highlighted with clear moments and splashes of yellow. This lovely butterflies scientific name is Thestylis but it is better known as a "Painted Jezebel". It is a member of the pieridae family that is native to the areas surrounding Malaysia and India. I have encased this butterfly in several layers of hand painted resin, following its form creating a very natural appeal. The resin that I use is clear so what you see are the natural colors of the butterfly. This resin does transmute the colors slightly as it turns the butterfly semi-transparent giving it an allure much like stained glass. The wing span of this beauty is 3 7/8" making for a rather bold statement. This enchanting butterfly pendant comes on an 18 inch 1.5mm black leather cord with a small chain extension and an easy to use lobster clasp. Guaranteed to attract attention, your friends will amazed when you tell them it's a real butterfly.
