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.

Andrea Panico began designing jewelry in 2008 with the vision of creating pieces inspired by her love of architecture. Andrea approaches her designs like “an architect of small things,” with a focus on unique connections and construction details. This reflects Andrea’s belief that little details in what we wear, where we live, and what we use can make a big impact on our daily experience. We may not all be architects, but we’re all building something. Andrea earned a Master of Industrial Design degree from Pratt Institute and a BS from Cornell University. She lives in Montclair, NJ with her husband and two children.

        I love the short length and the color contrast of gold and silver. I get a lot of questions and compliments about this necklace. Nobody has ever seen an origami necklace. I like how unique it is and that nobody else has one.
