Sterling Silver Butterfly Pendant set in Blue and Yellow Sapphires

$162.93

This listing is for a pendant set in 1 mm sapphires: 4 yellow sapphires and 6 blue sapphires. At an antique fair a few years ago I came across a bohemian glass beaded necklace with a range of animals, insects and even a human figure. These beads were strung along rusted wire. All beads were time worn and the colours long faded, so I gave myself the project of bringing them back to life in silver. The original butterfly bead was damaged across one of the wings, a chipped edge. It was also too heavy in silver after first casting, so I worked with wax castings to finally achieve this flat backed sterling silver butterfly with textured abdomen, antennae and wings with delicate veins and markings. It is delightfully light and hangs from one jump ring at an angle, as if captured in mid-flight. The butterfly is an emblematic symbol of change and transformation.

The pendant is supplied on an 18" chain, and will be posted in a gift box and padded envelope.

The first photograph shows the listed pendant set in sapphires. The following three show it without stones. The final photograph shows the wax and silver castings of the collection.
