Inspired by Aotearoa's beautiful native butterflies, my kinetic butterfly has delicate silver wings that open to dazzling gold. Butterflies symbolise renewal, hope and endurance, making this necklace a special keepsake to usher in change for the better.
The sterling silver butterfly wings measure 8mm x 15mm, and are hand bonded with 14k gold on the inside of the wings. A tiny cream 3mm freshwater pearl is wrapped onto the wings, creating the butterfly's body. The butterfly is suspended from a 45cm sterling silver chain, with a 5cm extender.
Nicki Cliff is the creative force behind Lily Griffin Jewellery. Lily Griffin jewellery is designed and handcrafted by Nicki in her tiny studio at home in Auckland. Her gorgeous range is named after her energetic and expressive children, Lily and Griffin. Incredibly Nicki is a self taught jeweller. She models designs in fine silver and then casts them in sterling silver, adding touches of colour to some pieces with porcelain paint. We love her pieces for their delicate beauty and the fact that every piece is painstakingly handmade, her attention to detail is evident in each petal and every tiny brush stroke.
