Rainbow Butterfly Necklace – “Dream Maker”

Rainbow Symbolism

The most common meaning associated with rainbows is one of hope. They appear in the sky when the sun comes out after a storm, bringing lightness and color to what was dark and threatening a few minutes before. As a result, rainbows are often associated with a sense of hope when the worst is over. They can be a sign of hope for a brighter future or a new beginning. Accordingly, jewelry with rainbow designs often makes a great gift for someone who has been through a difficult time.

Rainbows have many different meanings across different cultures and interests. When a beloved pet passes on, we say they have crossed the rainbow bridge. A rainbow baby is a healthy baby after a heartbreaking loss or infertility struggles. Both are metaphors of hope and love.

Rainbows can also symbolize equality and diversity. The rainbow needs all of the different colors of light to exist. It takes all of those unique shades and combines them into one phenomenon of nature. Each color is unique and has its own value, but together they combine to make something truly incredible. No one color is greater than the others – they are are all equally needed to create the full rainbow. Consequently, this is often used as a metaphor for community, diversity, and equality.

Unique design & craftsmanship

Artist Shirley Matteson took the beauty and powerful symbolism of the rainbow, combined it with that of the butterfly, and created this truly unique rainbow butterfly necklace. Using the Cloisonné technique, she carefully layers minuscule 24k gold wires to create the design for her fine jewelry. Then, she layers colored enamel to create the luminous rainbow effect.
