Small Blue Butterfly Pendant, Petite Butterfly Necklace, Small Blue Morpho Butterfly Necklace
This small real blue butterfly necklace is made with the recycled wing of a blue morpho butterfly. It is the perfect necklace for a child, youth or small person. The butterfly is purchased at a dried insect supplier who purchases cruelty free hand raised butterflies. It has been cut to be smaller than it's natural form to approximately 1.75"x1", perfect for a child, youth or petite neckline. I soldered the wing smooth and added droplets of solder around the wing and put an oxidized gunmetal like patina. One side shows the outer tan or brown wing, depending on morpho species available. Both sides can be worn to change the look so it is like having two pendants for the price of one. This pendant comes on a 16" sterling silver chain. Please message if you would like a longer length
I use many recycled wings that collectors reject due to flaws or missing antennae and preserves them into beautiful wearable pieces of art that can be handed down for future generations to enjoy! Please allow for minor flaws or color variations. I do my utmost to be sure each piece sent is of the highest standard possible.
To avoid discoloring or molding of your precious wing, please be sure not to get your butterfly wet and to wipe any oils from skin off of the glass and silver alloy, with a soft dry cotton cloth.
