Story

The wings of butterflies have been used in jewelry since the early 1800s and became even more popular during the late Victorian and early Edwardian eras as well as again emerging as a fashionable trend of the 1920s and 1930s.

Within a two sided glass-covered surround of gilt metal and upon a bed of mother-of-pearl rests a preserved Blue Morpho butterfly with dorsal wings spread in all its iridescent blues and subtle greens. Reverse the pendant and the soft brown, bronze and orange colors of the ventral or underside displays the distinctive pattern of ocelli or “eyespots” Sprigs of dried flowers of gardens past join the Blue Morpho in a never ending adventure of sunlight bright.
