She is perched on the fern as if she could take flight at any moment. Her beautiful wings outstretched. It is like she is showing off those wings. Just resting a moment and taking her surroundings in, wondering where next to drink from before she starts her journey to Mexico to sleep for the winter. The forest floor below her, mushrooms popping up from the soil. A tiny ecosystem as the central theme of this one of a kind bracelet. Because of the pattern on the bottoms of her wings, we know that she is female. A mother and a fighter and a gorgeous part of the natural world.
There are four gemstones next to her that will never again be repeated in nature. The two stones at the ends of the bracelets are Herkimer diamond clusters. One light, one dark, to represent her black and white spots. Both are covered in tiny bright crystals. There is a green phantom quartz point to her left to represent the green Earth. A beautiful mineral that has a soft green smaller crystal that has long been growing within the quartz. To the right of the monarch is an orange spessartine garnet point to represent her bright orange coloration. This stone is such a wonderful color with unique tiny crystals growing all over it.
The bracelet is 7.5 inches long, the monarch scene in the center is 2 inches wide and 1.75 inches tall. For the best fit, this bracelet should be slightly snug on your wrist so that your monarch always stays as the focal point. If you need this bracelet to be made either smaller or larger, we can work together to make that happen. My wrist is almost 7 inches around and I am wearing it in some of these photos. If your wrist is a little larger or smaller then I can create, or take away, links so that this will fit you perfectly.
This one of a kind piece will be packaged up sweetly and mailed off to you within 3-5 business days.
As always, whenever I sell a piece of jewelry that is invertebrate themed, I donate part of the sale to the Xerces Society. A non-profit organization that is working to educate and conserve the beautiful invertebrate family of animals. That includes our beloved monarch butterfly. Thank you for working with me to do this!
