Tigers Eye… green and orange butterfly necklace

Artist Shirley Matteson designed and created this gorgeous green
and orange butterfly necklace named ‘Tigers Eye.’

Shirley was inspired by butterflies of all colors, and has created a range of butterfly pendants. Specifically, this one is made from all green and orange stripes – ranging from dark forest greens through an almost yellow green, contrasted with a deep orange brown. In addition, tiny 24k gold wires create the detail on the butterfly and truly shine against these bold colors. This is a process called ‘Cloisonné,‘ and the result is a unique tigers eye butterfly that’s sure to stand out.

In order to create these gorgeous Tigers Eye butterfly necklaces for her fine jewelry collection, Shirley first bends tiny gold wires to form the outer shape and inner details. Then, she fills in the shapes with colorful green and orange enamel in a bold stripe pattern. After firing the piece, a beautiful butterfly necklace emerges, ready to stand out and be noticed!

Of course, butterflies are a symbol of hope and rebirth to people everywhere, because of the metamorphosis they make from caterpillar to butterfly. Therefore, butterfly necklaces in particular make great gifts for moms, because of this association with transformation. Rites of passage are also great times to gift a butterfly necklace. They make a great choice for milestone birthdays, graduations, and other important life events.

All of Shirley’s butterfly jewelry comes in its own rosewood box with a pouch that prevents it from tarnishing. Every necklace Shirley makes also comes with an Italian sterling silver chain. Just let her know at checkout if you prefer 16-inch or 18-inch length. Or, if you prefer your butterfly necklace to be made entirely in gold, that’s also a possibility. Please contact Shirley to find out more information and pricing.
