Fine Jewelry: Gold Butterfly Lapel Decor

Artist Shirley Matteson designs and creates handcrafted, fine silver jewelry. Here, she has created a gorgeous gold butterfly lapel decor jewel.

Inspired by butterflies of all colors, Shirley has created a gorgeous, gold swallowtail butterfly lapel decor jewel. Black enamel edging highlights the gold inlay and the tiny 24k gold wires used in the Cloissoné jewlery making process. The whole jewel is set in silver. The result is a luminous gold butterfly that’s sure to sparkle on anyone’s lapel.

Shirley uses a technique called ‘Cloissoné,’ to create these luminous butterflies. First, she inlays gold into the butterfly shape, then bends tiny wires to form the butterfly wings structural lines. Then, she fills in the shapes with a black edge and body and the remainder with transparent enamel. In the end, what emerges is a truly unique piece of wearable art that will stand out and get noticed.

The Gold Swallowtail Butterfly Lapel Decor Jewel

Of course, Shirley’s butterfly jewelry comes with a rosewood box and a storage pouch.  Naturally, when you’re not showing off your fabulous gold butterfly lapel decor, keep your fine jewelry in the silvercloth pouch so she won’t get tarnished.
