Monarch Chrysalis pendant, 24k gold and artisan glass. A gift with meaning Butterfly Art Pendant Conservationist Environmental Garden art
An artisan glass and 24k gold monarch butterfly chrysalis replica handmade one at a time in a 2000 degree torch. I've been studying and caring for the monarch chrysalis for over 20 years. Each glass chrysalis is made one at a time in the flame of a torch, adding pure 24k gold while it's still semi-molten. I use a caliper so each piece measures out at no more than 1" and no less than 15/16", for that is how they measure when i raise them every summer. All pieces are kiln annealed and set on a 20 14k gold-fill bail and chain. It's been an awe-inspiring challenge to try to recreate what nature does so beautifully. A large number of my customers like to compare their necklaces to a real chrysalis, as i have done on my store front page. With such high expectations, it's very important to me to meet or exceed them. Why settle for plastic or other cheap knock-offs when there is an heirloom quality art piece available right here. I have a long track record of very happy customers. This sale is not for the item pictured, but is made to order. This item is made of glass, 24k gold and american sourced artisan glass. The style is traditional and zen.
