"Black Butterfly" by Denise Williams-
This is one of my favorite ballads. I identify with the lyrics of this song so much. For me the "butterfly" represents my dreams and how one day they will be free. I created this pendant while listening to the song.
The "Black Butterfly" is a very special collection of limited edition paper butterfly pendants, earrings and hopefully bracelets( I'm working on it) These will be the original pieces using this median, but as soon as I learn how to solder and cast.....OH BOY...this butterfly design will take on a whole new level.. but I must be patient;-)
It may not look like much to some but this symbolizes my early stage as an artist..simple but different-unique yet evolving-it's who am, and what I want to be.It's the kind of design I want a customer/supporter to own and remember this as one of my early works, as all artists grow and become better and more in tune with their craft, it definitely shows in their work.
I remember a young blacksmith artist from Soho who started out as a street vendor herself selling handcrafted metal jewelry stands, one of which I bought-fantastic work-oh! I wish I still had the stand. I lost it years ago at a fair I was working. I as so sad, because I knew I would never find a piece like it and I understand her passion behind it's creation-

Now she makes metal furniture in Japan last time I heard- that was 7 yrs ago. Who knew huh?? If I could remember her full name and Google her I'll post a link here.
This necklace will be sold in my Etsy shop. I will take some much better pics of it before I post later today-it's like 2a.m EST right now - I'm going to bed lol!!
