Golden Fauna - Swallowtail Butterfly
The Golden Fauna Collection are drawn from butterflies and moths in nature, but recreated entirely in gold with small accents in white.
Inspired by the Swallowtail Butterfly, this hanging was cut from clear glass, then hand-painted in gold, accent details added in white, and fired to an enamel finish. Care was taken to replicate the butterfly's wing patterns as faithfully as possible, including the light veining of the wings.
Two discreet copper loops are attached to the top of the wings and then connected by a thin copper chain for hanging.
Each butterfly, like those in nature, is completely unique.
