I recently spent some time in the studio playing with crushed Gilson opal. This butterfly has black base glass, encased with the opal under a layer of clear glass. The opal gives an iridescent confetti effect, gently shimmering when it moves. It's a challenge to photograph, but I hope the multiple angles give you an idea of the effect. The edges of the wings have stacked dot detail in white, teal, and a variegated ambery magenta.
The pendant comes ready to wear, strung on a length of black cotton cord. It measures 52mm x 40mm, with a 4 mm loop behind the top left wing.
