Reviews for Shirley’s Small Gold Butterfly Necklace

Exceeded Expectations!

These days few things in life exceed expectations, however, from the time I sent my order in all the way through to her follow up after the holidays, it couldn’t have been any better. Always great to do business with good folks!

Sometimes, less is more, as with “Mini” this small gold butterfly necklace
Inlay 22k gold with 22k gold wires

As always, Artist Shirley Matteson designs and creates handcrafted, fine silver jewelry. Here, she has created Mini, a gorgeous fine silver morpho butterfly necklace inlayed with 22K gold that is absolutely breathtaking.

Beginning with inspiration from butterflies of all colors, Shirley has created a gorgeous, gold swallowtail butterfly necklace named ‘Mercy’. Black enamel edging highlights the 24K inlay and the tiny gold wires used in the Cloissoné jewlery making process. The result is a luminous gold butterfly that’s sure to amaze and delight.

Shirley uses the ‘Cloissoné’ technique to craft her stunning butterflies. First, she inlays 22K gold into the butterfly shape, then bends tiny wires to form the structural lines of the butterfly’s wings. Then, she fills it in with a black edge and body and adds transparent enamel to the rest, allowing the brilliant gold to shine through. What emerges from her workshop is a truly unique piece of wearable art that will stand out and get noticed.

The Mini Gold Butterfly Jewel

Shirley’s butterfly jewelry comes with a rosewood box, storage pouch, and sterling silver chain.  Be sure to let her know at checkout if you prefer a 16-inch or 18-inch chain.  When you’re not showing off your fabulous necklace, keep her in her silvercloth pouch so she won’t get tarnished.

If you love the butterfly, but are looking for something larger or more of a statement, take a look at Grace and Mercy, Shirley’s two larger gold butterfly necklaces.

If you prefer, Shirley’s butterfly necklaces can also be made entirely in 22k gold. Please contact her for details and pricing.
