Lovey… a stunning gold butterfly!

For years, Artist Shirley Matteson has been designing fine silver jewelry. But now, she has created ‘Lovely,’ a stunning solid gold butterfly necklace, which is set entirely in solid 18k gold.

This stunning piece is a gorgeous, gold swallowtail butterfly necklace named ‘Lovey’. Highlightd by Black enamel edging, the gold inlay and the tiny gold wires used in the Cloissoné jewlery making process really shine here. Not only does this piece have the gold wires and inlay, but the entire jewel is also set in solid 18k gold. The result is an impressive luminous gold butterfly that’s sure to stop people in their tracks.

Shirley uses a technique called ‘Cloissoné,’ to create her butterfly jewels. First, she inlays gold into the outline of the butterfly shape. Then, she painstakingly bends tiny 24k gold wires to create the structural lines of the wings. Next, the artist fills in the outline with a bold black edge and gold body and the fills the remainder with a transparent enamel. In the end, what emerges from the heating process is a truly unique piece of fine jewelry that will definitely stand out and get noticed.

The Solid Gold Butterfly Jewel

Of course, Shirley’s gold 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.
