Recently I was given a collection of butterflies from one man's travels. Each was kept neatly in wax paper, many of them labeled. One even dated back to 1984 and was in pristine condition! His passion for travel, his appreciation of butterflies and his generosity have given me the opportunity to work with so many beauties that we don't see in this region. This is the first series in the limited edition collection "Wanderlust". As with all of my work, each piece is one of a kind. I hope you enjoy these as much as I enjoyed creating them.
A large fore wing with vibrant orange and brown is hung on a lead and nickel free chain accented with brass paddles. The necklace continues with Tourmaline, Garnet and sterling silver and copper beads and is finished with chain for adjustable lengths. The wing is 2".
Please specify the length you prefer at checkout.
“Tourmaline can be used to attract inspiration, to diminish fear by promoting understanding, and to encourage self-confidence. It provides for a balancing of the male/female energies within the body; it further provides for balancing of the mind, of the energy centers and of the auric body, inducing the alignment of the mental processes and the chakras with the ethereal structure.”
"Garnet is a stone of health, extracting negative energy from the chakras, and transmuting the energy to the beneficial state. It is also been known as a stone of commitment - to purpose, to others, and to oneself. The loving powers of garnet tied to reflect the attributes of devotion bringing the love of others to expressions of warmth and understanding. It is quite helpful in moods of abandonment, allowing one to realize that surrender to discontinuity brings freshness to ones life."
