To create the Ophelia Necklace, artist Lisa Black mounted a Panacea prola butterfly onto sustainable bamboo and hand-applied translucent resin to protect the delicate wings. Like a locket necklace, you can open and close the pendant at the metal hinges that connect each wing. When opened, the necklace reveals the full span of the butterfly’s wings; when closed, the bamboo’s carved design provides a window into the inner beauty locked inside. The butterfly gently dangles from a 16-inch, gold-plated chain.
Chain is 16" long. Pendant is 2.5" high. Lobster clasp.
Gilded Butterflies does not use rare, endangered, or trade-restricted butterflies. Handmade and shipped from New Zealand.
