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 a technique called ‘Cloissoné,’ to create these luminous butterflies. First, she inlays gold into the butterfly shape, then bends tiny 24k gold 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 Solid Gold Butterfly Jewel

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