Seed Beaded Butterfly Barrette, Orange Monarch Fantasy Barrette, Bead Embroidery Hair Clip, Heavenly Hair Adornment, Bead Woven Art Barrette

A few summers ago, I saw a skipper butterfly in my garden. This butterfly seemed to have two sets of wings, a pair that laid flat and a pair which shot out strait up from it's back. I took a picture of a 'real live one', so you can see where I got my inspiration for this piece.

Butterflies represent transformation and change. The chrysalis (cocoon of the butterfly) represents eternal life, and change. As the butterfly bursts from it's tomb-(chrysalis), so we are reminded of the changes we make as we cast aside our present shells for a new existence. Our 'shells' can be beliefs, physical, mental, spiritual, emotional, or the ways we percieve reality. Awakening to new perceptions is indeed a resurrection from the death of our old ways.

A skipper represents small miracles. Sometimes we don't notice the small miracles in our every day existence. Once we open up to recoginize one miracle, we become aware of many more.

The color therapy symbolism for this piece:
orange: dreams, creativity
black: rebirth, creation, grounding
silver: light of the goddess (female aspect of god), moon power, eloquence

This piece is made with old Czech silver lined beads, old Czech two cut beads, vintage Czech round sliced bead, Czech faceted bead, Vintage Czech pebble beads, miyuki bugle beads, matte iris designed dagger beads. The backing is vegan ultra suede and the barrette is a french clip.
This piece measures 2inches (50mm) across and about 42mm long (including antenna). The barrette clip itself is an inch and a half.
No glues are used. Everything is hand sewn with precision and care.

On a personal note:
I have been beading since the age of thirteen. Through the years I have mastered, taught, and written about different beading techniques, wire wrapping, metalsmithing, lapidary (gemstone cutting), and gem stone properties. I am big into research. I feel it is extremely important to know where things come from and how they are made, from our food supply to our clothing and adornments. The choices we make effect everything including the quality of living for ourselves and others. GoodnessInTheCosmos.etsy.com uses the most natural materials possible. I sew rather than glue, I choose untreated, undyed gemstones. I use only solid sterling earwire or gold fill, as it is better for the environment than a higher grade gold. I like copper wire, it is primitive and easy to manufacture. I use animal free fibers, ALWAYS!

Here is a bit about what you can find in my shop:

Hand made Jewelry,Earrings, Bracelets, Anklets, Barrettes, Necklaces, Pendants, Rings, Natural Gemstone Jewelry, Healing Stone Synergy Jewelry, Seed Bead Art Adornments, OOAK and original jewelry, Wire wrapped jewelry, Metalsmithed Jewelry and Hand Lapidary Stone Jewelry (collected cut and polished by myself).

What is 'Gemstone Synergy' and Healing Stones? Since the beginning of history, humans have adorned themselves with stones and metals as jewelry. Just as long, cultures throughout the entire world have attributed special significance to the specific qualities of each stone and metal worn. Goodness In The Cosmos Healing Stone Jewelry uses Gemstone Synergy, which is the unique combination of specific stone properties, united to form one specific 'theme' energy.

What is Color Therapy Bead Art? Adorn your beautiful self with one of a kind beaded works of art jewelry. Goodness In The Cosmos Color Therapy Bead Art uses a variety of techniques from bead embroidery, to loom work, and off loom bead weaving techniques, all with beads smaller than crumbs :) These pieces use color therapy (the idea that certain colors influence emotions) and artistic meanings behind each piece.

What Materials are Used? -Goodness In The Cosmos uses the best quality natural beads available to make beaded gemstone crowns (special orders available), spirit halos(seed beaded crown), hair jewelry barrette adornments, earrings, bracelets, pins and power necklaces. Pieces will use all natural gemstones, czech and miyuki delica beads, as well as upcycled components and materials. All materials are vegan and promote a healthy loving lifestyle.

Occasionally this store will list embroidery floss friendship bracelets. Every artist has their roots and those (as well as fine seed beadwork) are mine! :)

Like all gemologists and artists, I must put this disclaimer that, no jewelry is meant to treat/heal any medical condition. Please see your trusted physician for any physical/psychological complaints.
