Bold, bright and beautiful are some of the ways that I would describe this real butterfly necklace. The dominate color of this butterfly is a bright yellow yet it is speckled with touches of light brown giving it character. This wonderful species name is Phoebis Rurina but it is commonly referred as a "Sulphur". It is a member of the Pieridae family that is found native in Central and South America. I have encased this butterfly in several layers of hand painted resin, following its gentle 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. This resin does transmute the colors slightly as it turns the butterfly semi-transparent giving it an appearance much like stained glass. The wing span of this beauty is 3 1/4" making for a bold and engaging presence. This bright butterfly pendant comes on an 18 inch 1.5mm black leather cord with a small chain extension and an easy to use lobster clasp. Sure to bring you plenty of attention, you will enjoy telling folks that it is a real butterfly.
