Did you know that butterfly wings are actually clear? Their vibrant and diverse color comes from the delicate scales that cover butterfly wings. (The name Lepidoptera, the order that includes butterflies and moths is from the latin roots lepid = scale, and ptera = wing.)
This butterfly's color isn't from scales, but from several colors of borosilicate glass, many of which have a subtle glittery sparkle. The base of the wings is a lavender-toned gray, accented with purples, magenta, blues, and ambers. This pendant is created to capture the posture of a butterfly perched on a flower.
The butterfly hangs from loop positioned behind the top wing, and comes ready to wear, strung on a length of black cotton cord. It measures 56mm x 32mm, with a 3-4 mm loop. It is borosilicate glass, created entirely in the flame, and is fully annealed.
