Native to Europe and temperate Asia, the peacock butterfly has distinctive markings – distilled to bold, graphic form here. Lacking in the vibrant color of the real thing, I’ve relied on the distinctive shapes to capture a sense of this lively creature for all seasons. The butterfly sits comfortably across the top of the wrist, while carefully shaped sterling silver ‘arms’ join to the butterfly on each side and wrap around the back of the wrist to join with a handmade clasp. Completely hand fabricated in sterling, this one-of-a-kind bracelet is part of my 2016 series, ‘the butterfly project’, one butterfly per month throughout the year. Finished with a varied patina of dark and rust tones, with silver highlights.
