Butterfly and Pearl Victorian Necklace

As I was designing new jewelry this pretty seemed just the ticket to celebrate Spring, and the Victorian’s penchant for nature and symbolism. The centerpiece is a repurposed Victorian or Edwardian MOP, Mother of Pearl pin.  Her hand carved imagery includes butterflies/dragonflies for transformation and a seven pointed star for love.  MOP is a symbol for stimulating imagination and clarity.  She joins a repurposed Victorian hat pin, a nod to the Victorian’s fascination with the ancient Etruscan gold work.  The setting, chain and clasp are gold filled.
