This resplendent butterfly necklace is fashioned from 100% reclaimed copper. I created this design and handmade the necklace here in Georgia, USA.

**********

This original butterfly design is inspired by the markings of the Wood Nymph butterfly, its hallmark characteristic being the "eyespot" which I have mimicked with a tube rivet detail. Interestingly, in nature, these eyespots serve as an anti-predatory device, by either frightening a predator away or deflecting their gaze away from more vulnerable bits. The eyespots also serve to aid in butterfly mate recognition and selection.

So, adorn yourself with this butterlfy and use it how you wish: as a protective amulet from unwanted energy OR to attract the right kind...

I call this one the BIG COPPER WOOD NYMPH NECKLACE.

**********

This butterfly started out as an original hand sketch, which I then transferred to metal. I pierced the shape with a jeweler's saw then began to bring out her personality, layer by layer, one detail at a time. Made from 100% reclaimed copper, on a 16 inch doubled sterling silver chain. With a handmade hook closure, made from recycled silver. With sterling silver rivet detail and gold-plated nugget accents.

Each piece comes with a handmade reclaimed leather tag and in a gift-ready and adorable recycled brown box.
