Butterfly Dreams Necklace Romantic Symbol Jewelry

Regular price $95.00 $0.00

If you like things that are bright and shiney new this necklace is not for you.  This is a vintage pendant.  Hand painted porcelain butterfly is absolutely gorgeous.  However, it is truly vintage, therefore it is not perfect.  The details are exquisite.  Butterflies symbolize transformation and metamorphosis.

I do not know whether I was then a man dreaming I was a butterfly, or whether I am now a butterfly dreaming I am a man.  Chuang Tzu

I've hand wire wrapped wonderful natural blood red Carnelian with gold jewelers wire to form the chain.  To accent the pendant, I've clustered a generous mix of gems that pick up the rich colors of the butterfly. A one of a kind handcrafted necklace that is an exquisite piece of jewelry.

Note:  I love vintage things and often incorporate them into my work.  This butterfly pendant is one of a very few that I've been hoarding for years.  I purchased them, along with some others, many years ago and have never seen anything like them since.  When they're gone, they're gone.
