The shop has been lightly updated including two different types of butterfly curio necklaces!!
The apothecary vial contains a perfectly secure rose bud and butterfly wing. Perfectly adhered to the bottom of the vial you will find inside it's contents are safe from movement. An elegant and bare brass apothecary label adorns this vial giving it a whimsical Victorian aesthetic. This necklace comes hung on a simple brass chain that is not pictured here.
Butterflies can often symbolize rebirth, transcendence, transformation and change. The name butterfly comes from a translation of the greek word for psyche meaning soul. It is common in mythology for butterflies and the soul to be linked as one because of this. The reference to the soul also makes it common for the butterfly to represent dreams and dreamland.
Roses are traditionally used for more than just love; they are also used protection and divination. In the Victorian language of flowers red roses symbolize secret messages. In Greek mythology Aphrodite was born and the seafoam dripping off of her turned into white roses in image of her purity.
All insects used in my artwork are items I found as they are in nature/city life. No animals, insects, nor arachnids were harmed by me. This particular butterfly was found by my inside of my workplace. Unfortunately; this butterfly did not die a natural death. This butterfly was found victim of another employee spraying bug-killer inside the building. I mourn the loss of this butterfly and all his insect friends. Thank you for reading!
