Mercy… a stunning golden butterfly!

Artist Shirley Matteson started out by desiging fine silver jewelry. Now, she created ‘Mercy,’ a gorgeous gold butterfly necklace, inlayed with 22K gold.

After creating butterfly necklaces in all the colors of the rainbow (including the rainbow itself), Shirley decided to create a gold version. And that’s how we got “Mercy,’ a gorgeous gold butterfly necklace. Black enamel edging highlights the 22K gold inlay and the tiny gold wires used in the Cloissoné jewlery making process. The result of all this hard work is a luminous gold butterfly that will glitter and shine.

Using a French technique called ‘Cloissoné,’ Shirley is able to create these luminous enamel butterflies. She starts by inlaying 24K gold into the outline of the butterfly shape. Then, she meticulously bends teeny wires, forming the structural lines of the butterfly wings. Next, she fills the shapes with a bold black edging and body, and fills the rest of the butterfly with a transparent enamel. In the end, what emerges from this process is a truly unique jewel of wearable art that will defintely stand out and get compliments.

The Gold Morpho Butterfly Jewel

Of course, our gold butterfly jewelry comes with a rosewood box, storage pouch, and sterling silver chain. Also, be sure to let us know if you prefer a 16-inch or 18-inch chain at checkout.  Naturally, when you’re not wearing your fabulous gold butterfly necklace, please keep her in her silvercloth storage pouch so she won’t get tarnished.

Or, if you love the butterfly design, but are looking for something smaller and more dainty, check out Shirley’s smaller gold butterfly necklace, ‘Mini.’

If you prefer, these butterfly necklaces are also available entirely in solid gold. Or, if you’re looking for something a little different, check out Shirley’s gold butterfly lapel decor. It’s just like a pin, but won’t damage your clothing because it uses a rare earth magnet instead.

Golden butterflies are often symbols of luck and prosperity. These butterflies are thought to bring blessings and positive energy into one’s life. So, this gold butterfly necklace can symbolize joy and love, especially for relationships and marital harmony.
