Inspired by Aotearoa's beautiful native butterflies, my kinetic butterfly has delicate silver wings that open to dazzling gold. Butterflies symbolise renewal, hope and endurance, making this necklace a special keepsake to usher in change for the better.
The sterling silver butterfly wings measure 8mm x 15mm, and are hand bonded with 14k gold on the inside of the wings. A tiny cream 3mm freshwater pearl is wrapped onto the wings, creating the butterfly's body. The butterfly is suspended from a 45cm sterling silver chain, with a 5cm extender.
Lilygriffin jewellery is dainty and delicate, so care must be taken when wearing and storing it.
Please do not wear while exercising, swimming, gardening, showering, cleaning or sleeping. Store in a soft protective pouch or box out of direct sunlight and away from moisture, excessive heat or cold. Please do not store in the bathroom. Avoid contact with household chemicals, perfumes, creams, and hairspray/gels.
I would be delighted if you wanted to wear my jewellery everyday, but please be aware that you will be able to enjoy your handpainted and 14k and 24k gold embellished pieces longer if they are not worn on a day to day basis.
