Silver Origami Butterfly Brooch "Tranquillo", number eleven in Concerto Series, OOAK

Like this item?

Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.


This year, I challenged myself to create twelve exclusive origami butterfly brooches, one for each month, which I have named the Concerto series. Yes, I seem to have an affinity for using musical names. Each will explore new ideas in melding metal and origami, and each will only be made once.

This is the brooch for November, named "Tranquillo". The base of the butterfly is folded from a single sheet of .999 fine silver. The wings were then coated in a layer of raw iron, then oxidized to bring out the deep red and brown colors of rust. The body was left highly polished silver.

The pin back is solidly fuzed near the tops of the wing tips, so the brooch hangs properly without leaning forward.

This butterfly brooch is about 2 inches across, and just over one inch high. It is formed from approximately 5 grams of .999 fine silver, kiln fired, and highly polished; then coated with a thin layer of wax for protection.
Like every butterfly in the Concerto series, this comes with exclusive packaging, and a certificate of authenticity signed by the artist. It is a unique design that will never be made again.

Yes, all my silver origami items are hand folded from .999 fine silver, more pure than sterling.

Sterling silver contains at least 92.5% pure silver, which is why you see the ".925" stamp on sterling pieces. The other 7.5% is another metal, usually zinc or nickel, which is is why some people cannot wear it.

Fine Silver contains 99.9% pure silver. The higher silver content means there is almost no chance of allergic reaction, and it tarnishes much more slowly than sterling.
All my items are made from .999 fine silver. Some are highly polished, some are lightly antiqued to bring out details. Fine silver retains its polish much longer than sterling, but occasional buffing with a soft cloth or silver polish will keep it looking bright.
Sorry, I do not have the equipment to stamp or engrave, but any quality local jeweler should be able to do that for you. Make sure you tell them its fine silver.
Yes, I do custom work! If you have an idea for an origami jewelry item, I'll be happy to work with you.
Typcially, I will start with a prototype from paper for your approval. Once we agree on a paper design and price, payment is due in full and I will begin work on the jewelry. This usually takes about 2 weeks, but can be quite longer during the busy holiday season, so get your orders in early.
All items come in a tissue lined jewelry box, perfect for gifting. If your order is shipping direct to the recipient, please put that in the "notes to seller", and I will ship with a gift receipt that does not show the price.
Yes, many items are available for wholesale. For pricing and minimum purchase quantities please contact me directly.
