Precious… a gorgeous golden butterfly!

Normally, Artist Shirley Matteson designs and creates fine silver jewelry. Here, she has created ‘Precious,’ a stunning gold butterfly necklace, set in solid 18k gold.

Inspired by butterflies of all colors, Shirley has created a gorgeous, solid gold swallowtail butterfly necklace named ‘Precioius’. Black enamel edging highlights the gold inlay and the tiny gold wires used in the Cloissoné jewlery making process. The whole jewel is set in solid 18k gold. The result is a luminous gold butterfly that’s sure to amaze.

Shirley uses the Cloissone technique called to create these luminous golden butterflies. She begins by inlaying the gold into the butterfly shape and then bends tiny 24k gold wires to form the delicate structural lines of the wings. Next, she fills the shapes with a black edge and body for a bold contrasting look, and then completes the design with a transparent enamel. The result is a truly unique jewel that stands out and gets noticed.

The Solid Gold Butterfly Jewel

Of course, Shirley’s butterfly jewelry comes with a rosewood box, storage pouch, and gold vermeil chain.  Also, when you checkout, let her know if you prefer the 16-inch or 18-inch chain. And, when you’re not showing off your fabulous gold butterfly necklace, be sure to return her to her silvercloth pouch so she won’t get tarnished.

Or, if you love the golden butterfly jewel, but are maybe looking for something smaller and more dainty, take a look at Shirley’s smaller solid gold butterfly necklace, ‘Lovey.’

If you prefer, Shirley’s butterfly necklaces can also be set in silver instead of gold. She also has created a whole line of more colorful butterfly pendants. If you’re looking for something with a little different style, check out Shirley’s gold butterfly lapel decor. These jewels are almost like a lapel pin, but use a magnet instead.

Did you know that golden butterflies can symbolize luck and prosperity? They can even bring positive energy and blessings. Plus, this solid gold butterfly necklace can symbolize joy and love, especially for relationships and marital harmony.
