Fine Jewelry: Monarch Butterfly Lapel Decor

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

Inspired by butterflies of all colors, Shirley has created a gorgeous monarch butterly lapel decor jewel. The bold black and orange enamel of the monarch highlight 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 bold, classic monarch butterfly jewel that will elevate any outfit.

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 Monarch 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 monarch butterfly lapel decor, keep your fine jewelry in the silvercloth pouch so she won’t get tarnished.
