Mariposa (Butterfly), Necklace, Sterling Silver Jewelry

Amethyst & Peach Moonstone 2" x 1", 18" Chain

Always fascinating and found in all parts of the world the butterfly, or Mariposa in Spanish, is one of the wonders of the world. They can balance so delicately at the end of a flower petal, appearing so insubstantial then hover, swoop and fly thousands of miles during their life cycle, which is what the Monarch butterfly does. This not a delicate creature! We eagerly await the first butterflies of spring here in Alaska and there are many who grace us with their presence but the Swallowtail, with its bright yellow wings and black patterning- represented here- is my all-time favorite.
