Our necklaces are carefully handmade with high quality sterling silver, polished glass and the wings of the Luna moth. The luna moth gets its name from its moon-like spots on its wings and the insect family it belongs to, Saturniidae, is based on the eyespots of some members of the family that contain concentric rings reminiscent of the planet Saturn.
The butterfly wing is secured in a sterling silver and glass pendant that is reversible because it hangs from a pivoting bail. The domed glass on the front and back protects the wing and displays its amazing beauty. See a butterfly in my shop that you want made into jewelry, just ask!
Butterflies are symbols of transformation, growth, renewal, souls and spirits.
front: pale green
back: pale green
*PLEASE NOTE: butterfly wings are a natural material and colors and patterns may vary slightly.
The wing area of the pendant measures about 1″ long x 1/2″ wide (29 x 21mm). Comes with 18 inch sterling silver chain.
CARE AND CLEANING:
Sterling silver and glass can be polished with soft cloth. Pendants are water resistant but NOT waterproof. Please remove before showering or swimming.
I have a Master’s degree in Conservation Biology that focused on insects and care deeply about the environment and sustainability of my products. A majority of my specimens I use are raised on butterfly farms around the world and are NOT collected from the wild. These farms raise butterflies for live flying butterfly exhibits, museums and collectors. These farms can work as an important conservation tool by giving underprivileged populations a source of income and reason to protect rainforest habitat (where most butterflies are raised).
