“Matriarch” Butterfly Barrette. $1,600. SOLD.

Matriarch Butterfly Barrette

Our ways honor women, and the cycles of the natural world. Wings pays tribute to both, and to the small powerful spirits who serve as the royalty of the winds, the monarch butterfly: she who undergoes a process of metamorphosis to become an avatar, a leader of her kind. It begins with a pair of sterling silver wings, cut freehand with lightly scalloped edges, flanking a small round head and pair of graceful antennae. Her body is formed of a marquise-cut onyx cabochon, set into a saw-toothed bezel and overlaid at the center. Her tricolor upper wings are formed from a pair of oval snowflake obsidian stones, four brilliant orange round amber cabochons, and two smaller round rainbow moonstones. Her lower wings bear a pair of oval onyx cabs edged by alternating pairs of round citrine and rainbow moonstone cabochons, scattered above hand-stamped flowering images and sacred hoops accenting the bottom of her wings. Her whole being is slightly curved to follow the line of the French clip on the reverse. The barrette stretches 3.25″ across at the widest point and stands 2.5″ high at the highest point; center cabochon is 1.25″ long (dimensions approximate).
