This sweet little butterfly is reminiscent of antique teacup paintings.

I designed this piece for some knit items that I made, particularly as a fastener for a scarf. I used a safety pin through the bail portion and it worked great. I've also used this on leather items, as a sturdy closure. It also works well for wrap bracelets. It's very rustic and feels like it was made in a different time.

This pendant is handcarved from wax, then cast in bronze by my husband Greg, using the lost wax casting method. All metals, with the exception of gold, change over time and exposure to the elements, this piece will change as its worn, gaining shiny spots from clothh rubbing, or darkening from being in the shower. To prevent the surface from changing, spray with varnish, or leave it and allow it to change, cleaning it with a soft cloth once and awhile.

Note: All of our items are hand crafted from the finest materials available. It is our wish to create goods that will last several lifetimes and be cherished by our great grand kids! Also be aware that each piece is made by hand, meaning little differences may occur, like a tiny air bubble or seam line may be visible. These variances should not be viewed as flaws, but as evidence they are a handmade product.

This piece measures just under an inch wide. Thanks for looking!
