Chance Butterfly - Handmade Linh Le Glass Pendant Necklace Borosilicate Boro Lampwork

I made this pendant using borosilicate glass that is made in the USA. The glass edges are all nicely rounded. The method that I use is called an "implosion" and I use that term loosely as many different artist in the glass community have different definitions of what this is.

What makes this pendant special?
I am the only artist that makes these butterflies this way. Each section of each wing is hand placed methodically. Due to the implosion technique my butterflies have a 3D quality. Many admirers have told me that they actually thought I had capture a real butterfly and placed it in glass. You won't find the same quality and technique anywhere else!

What do butterflies signify?
In many cultures butterflies are associated with the soul. It’s connection with the soul is rather fitting. We are all on a long journey of the soul. On this journey we encounter endless turns, shifts, and conditions that cause us to morph into ever-finer beings. At our soul-journey’s end we are inevitably changed – not at all the same as when we started on the path.

The pendant is approximately 1.32" x 1.58".

Photography
I take my pictures using a photo tent outside in mother nature's greatest source of light, the sun! I take two pictures one on a velvet background so that you can see what it might look on skin. Another on a green walnut leaf so that you may see what it looks like if you wear it against a colored top.

When wearing, this pendant with absorb your body heat and stay at your body temperature. So its very comfortable. I constantly forget I'm wearing one and sometimes take a jog with one on. You can even go swimming with it!

This pendant is very durable and strong. It is made out of borosilicate glass, more commonly known as "Pyrex" glass. You probably have some of the same glass in your kitchen cabinets. Yes that's right, this is the same type of glass that is in Pyrex bakewear. It is also used for scientific use. If you have every taken Chemistry, you've handled it when you where using glass beakers. This means that this glass can take extreme temperatures FYI.

This pendant was kiln annealed. Some things to take into account. It is very unlikely that the body of the pendant with break. If dropped the two things that could happen: the loop could break off, a ding or scratch could come about. This is more likely to happen on concrete, tile, and glass itself. Pretty much any surface harder than glass. You have a good chance of nothing happening on hardwood.

If your pendant does get damaged. Please convo me, most likely I will be able to fix it for you. This will be free of charge. You pay for all the shipping most likely $5 total (roundtrip). Depending on what colors I originally used, if I do end up putting your pendant back in the flame there is a good chance the colors could change.

This pendant is not recommended for children. Children run and play, as they should, and this pendant can bounce around and it would be awful if someone got smacked in the face or a tooth knocked loose.

The photos are my own copyrighted photos of my jewelry. I make every pendant by hand. No two pendants are identical. So each one is unique and special! If you have any questions, please convo me before your transaction. Silver chain is not included in this listing.
