Reviews for Shirley’s Green Butterfly Necklace

Stops People in their Tracks!

After standing next to Shirley wearing one of her butterflies I was sold. I could not take my eyes off of it, I had never seen a butterfly pendant that seemed as if it could possibly fly right off your chest. I ordered a green swallow tail, but could not stop there. Now I have a butterfly, a heart pendant and earrings. Her work stops people in their tracks. One piece cannot possibly be enough for anyone!!

Spring Green… green butterfly necklace

Artist Shirley Matteson designed and created this gorgeous green butterfly necklace named ‘Spring Green.’

Shirley was inspired by butterflies of all colors, and has created a range of butterfly pendants. Specifically, this one is made from all green tones – ranging from dark forest greens through bright apple greens and even a slight tealish green. In addition, tiny 24k gold wires create the detail on the butterfly and truly shine against these brilliant green colors. This is a process called ‘Cloisonné,‘ and the result is a luminous spring green butterfly that’s sure to stand out.

The Spring Green Butterfly Necklace Jewel

In order to create these gorgeous Spring Green butterfly necklaces for her fine jewelry collection, Shirley first bends tiny gold wires to form the outer shape and inner details. Then, she fills in the shapes with colorful enamel in a wide range of green tones. After firing the piece, a beautiful green butterfly necklace emerges, ready to stand out and be noticed!

Green Butterfly Symbolism

Of course, butterflies are a symbol of hope and rebirth to people everywhere, because of the metamorphosis they make from caterpillar to butterfly. Therefore, butterfly necklaces in particular make great gifts for moms, because of this association with transformation. Rites of passage are also great times to gift a butterfly necklace. They make a great choice for milestone birthdays, graduations, and other important life events.

All of Shirley’s butterfly jewelry comes in its own rosewood box with a pouch that prevents it from tarnishing. Every necklace Shirley makes also comes with an Italian sterling silver chain. Just let her know at checkout if you prefer 16-inch or 18-inch length. Or, if you prefer your butterfly necklace to be made entirely in gold, that’s also a possibility. Please contact Shirley to find out more information and pricing.
