Butterfly Dreams Necklace Romantic Symbol Jewelry
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.
