Lustrous mother-of-pearl is adorned with a butterfly pattern of faceted cut steel sets which brings bright and shiny definition to the butterfly form. Creatively designed, this piece is meant to be a belt buckle as evidenced by the clasp in the back. However, if one threads through the back bars with a leather or silk cord, it becomes a striking pendant.

The beautifully shaped form of the butterfly is carved from two separate pieces of perfectly matched mother-of-pearl. These are mounted on strong metal backs to lend the necessary support for the mother-of-pearl.

The combination of the soft, light, lustre of the mother-of-pearl with the hard, dark, shine of the cut steel is impactful. This unusual buckle/pendant is an unmistakably special piece!

It measures approximately 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" and it weighs 43.1 grams.
