A blue butterfly is perceived as a wish-granter, if you spot one consider yourself very lucky! The Blue Morpho is the most well-known blue specimen. It has iridescent vivid blue wings with black edges and they can be as wide as 8 inches, placing the Blue Morpho among the largest butterfly in the world.
This blue butterfly necklace is more on the dainty side though: it is a bit under 1 inch wide and half an inch high. It makes for a perfect everyday necklace that can be layered with other longer chains or a choker. I hand enamel it with in different shades of blue: pastel blue, cobalt and and turquoise/teal.
I designed the wings in a geometric way and you would be surprised to know that geometry is omnipresent in the real lepidopter too. Indeed, pigmentation is not the cause of the shiny iridescent blue in the Morpho butterfly wings. The striking color comes from the way light reflects off of microscopic pyramid-shaped scales on the backs of the butterfly’s wings.
Other colors of butterfly necklaces are also available:
The butterfly itself spreads its wings about 1 inch wide.
Regarding the chain length, you can select your favorite from the menu and I will always add a 1.5 inches long extension chain too.
The pendant, chain, clasp and adjustment chain are all in 925 sterling silver.
Handmade means customizable:
Since I do make all the jewelry from scratch by hand you can fully customize your necklace. You can change the enamel colors by selecting two shades from my enamel chart here. Once you found your favorite colors, simply write them in the order note.
