Gilded Butterflies necklaces are one of a kind, hand made, wearable art pieces by Lisa Black, a Sculptor, Jeweller and Artist based in Auckland, New Zealand.
Inspired by the natural movement of butterflies and hinged at the body, Gilded Butterfly necklaces can be worn open or closed. When worn closed a glimpse of the wings can be seen through specially designed holes revealing a just a hint of the beauty concealed inside. All pieces are hand made in New Zealand using real butterflies and are protected and sealed by hand applied resin and mounted on sustainable bamboo.
Gilded Butterflies are sourced from purpose built tropical butterfly farms, resulting in an ecologically sound process that provides both income for remote communities and growth in the overall butterfly population. We refuse to use rare, endangered, or trade restricted butterflies.
