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 in hues of purple, blue, black and white. This pendant is created to capture the posture of a butterfly perched on a flower.
Both sides of the pendant are fully decorated, with a loop positioned behind the top wing.
The pendant comes ready to wear, strung on a length of black cotton cord. It measures 58mm x 46mm, with a 3-4 mm loop. It is borosilicate glass, created entirely in the flame, and is fully annealed.
