This limited edition necklace from Papillon Belle is made from a male Birdwing butterfly wing encased in glass and surrounded by a sterling silver frame.

The pendant is hung alongside a sterling silver skeleton wing, which also makes a lovely statement when worn on its own. This truly special piece will metamorphose into an heirloom, causing hearts to alight, generation after generation.
