I recently spent some time in the studio playing with crushed Gilson opal. This butterfly has black glass, encased with lots of crushed 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 and shades of teal and a deep ambery magenta.
This butterfly also has a matching pair of earrings, also available in this posting.
The pendant comes ready to wear, strung on a length of black cotton cord. It measures 49mm x 44mm, with a 4 mm loop behind the top right wing.
