Piece can be worn as a pendant or brooch and is sold complete with an 18 inch long sterling silver chain. The butterfly is fashioned from the finest sterling silver and embellished with Moonstones. The eyes are formed from two blue Sapphires. The blue wings are vitreous enamelled in the Plique-a-Jour style. Plique a Jour is a highly specialised enamelling technique and provides vibrant colour to many of the insect designs. Working like a miniature version of stained-glass, powdered glass is placed in cells and heated. Unlike cloisonné work the cells are open which allows the light to shine through the transparent or translucent enamel.

 

Handmade in Derbyshire, UK.

Dimensions: Wings 50mm wide.
