Sunset Circles Necklace

Artist Statement: This pendant features real sunset moth wings encased in glass and silver alloy. The pendant measures 1.5" x 2.5" and hangs on a 16" sterling silver ball chain. A small circle dangles from a larger one to create an abstract design in the amazing colors of the sunset moth: Irridescent greens, orange and red, colors that seem to glow from within. A hematite bead hangs from the bottom for a bit extra shiney detail. The butterflies I use are farmed all over the world, and collected when naturally expired. None are killed for use in my jewelry.
