Swarovski Crystal Butterfly SunCatcher
This pretty hanging suncatcher features one of my handmade butterfly creations in a beautiful shimmery iridescent colour
The butterfly is suspended on a length of strong silver beadalon thread and embellished with amethyst and quartz gemstones and Swarovski crystals
A lovely genuine 22mm Swarovski crystal peardrop in Aurore Boreale shade hangs at the bottom of the sun catcher and really catches and sparkles in the light
The thread is looped ready for Hanging in a window
Presented in a hand stamped box made of recycled card & filled with green recycled shredded paper with a print out of the butterflies meaning curled up in a scroll & tied with ribbon
~ Butterfly ~ Transformation ~
Cultural myth and lore honour the butterfly as a symbol of transformation because of the impressive process of metamorphosis. Symbolically the butterfly asks us to accept the changes in our lives and reminds us that just when the Caterpillar thought its world was over, it became a Butterfly!**
Approx Length 24cm
The butterfly is 5cm across at it's widest point
The Butterfly is made by a process of layering up heat bondable plastic fantasy film so is naturally quite thin & flexible.
The film is composed of more than 90% post industrial waste making it a more eco friendly type of plastic, the film contains no harmful ingredients, no heavy metals, and is formaldehyde free.
The plastic film is very thin and although I use up to 8 layers in each piece please be aware that it still makes for a thin flexible item, the effect is delicate and slightly transparent like real wings!
*Many thanks to Avia Venefica for allowing me use her interpretations of the symbolic meanings of trees, moths & dragonfly's, if you are interested in the symbolic & spiritual meanings of nature her blog is well worth a visit:-

These are beautiful suncatchers! My original order was unfortunately lost in the mail, and arrived a month after it was mailed, in a severely damaged box. They had been packaged so well, though the box was smashed, the suncatchers weren't harmed. Kate was very prompt in her replies to my messages, and sent a replacement package that arrived unscathed. I would definitely buy from this shop again.
