The metal Butterfly pendant was originally a pin that you could put on you shirt. I decided to take the pin portion of it off so it could be a pendant because the detail of this metal butterfly is extremely intricate. I created the necklace around it to compliment and emphasize the gold color and detail of the pendant. I added the white shell squares to add a new color and some texture to the piece. Some of the smaller beads are from antique necklaces that i have found and taken apart.The total length of this necklace is 20 inches.
