Colour Takes Flight - Butterfly Necklaces
by Alana Jones
(Mooroolbark, Victoria, Australia)
I work from my home Studion in Mooroolbark, Victoria.
Originally I created these stunning necklaces as an experiment to try and come up with a stained glass effect.
After many attempts and a few crazy shapes the end product emerged in the shape of these pretty little butterfly necklaces.
They are so colourful and eye catching.
I created them by layering coloured polymers into hand-shaped silver plated wire frames; which I then coated with a liquid varnish to give them a beautiful glossy finish.
The wings are slightly transparent and the colours are gorgeous.
Then Swarovski Crystals are added for an extra little sparkle.
These necklaces are all so lightweight and delicate to wear.
I always get so many comments when I wear them and my
customers say the same.
