Style Aflutter

Delicate and precise, the art of origami is steeped in romantic imagery and tradition. This lovely brass pendant celebrates the winged symbol of transformation while paying homage to the beauty of paper folding.

This enchanting piece came to be after artist Andrea Panico was asked to design a custom pendant for a friend's wedding anniversary. At their wedding, hundreds of paper origami butterflies created an ethereal centerpiece, and so a beautiful metal replica served as the perfect commemoration. Using 3D software, Andrea created a mold and now hand casts each butterfly, finishing them with a beautiful matte surface. Perched on a sterling silver chain, each handmade butterfly look as if it's about to take flight, lending natural magic to your ensemble. Handmade in the USA.
