Real Butterfly Necklace!

Real Butterfly Necklace!

Here is my new butterfly necklace that I assembled this week … just in time for Spring!
I am so pleased with how it came together!

It is assembled using silver chain, real butterfly wings encased in resin, little stainless steel butterfly charms, lots of jump rings and a lobster clasp.

I’ve taken photos in various light to try to showcase the depth and variation of color of these beautiful butterfly and moth wings. It’s amazing to me how different the wings appear depending upon whether they’re in natural sunlight, indirect light, or under a lamp!
