This piece is designed to be reminiscent of butterfly trees in Pacific Grove, and the two combined elements make a Monarch Duet.
First, there's a base made of heavy copper wire, like the branch of a tree, which is designed to display the piece. This base is suspended by a copper chain.
The second piece, layered on top of the branch, is a lariat-style chain with glass butterflies and copper wire. The gorgeous glass monarch wings by Kim Snider make a gentle tinkling sound and the Lucite whispers when they move. It has strategically-placed rings that allow you to mount it on the branch.
Together, these two pieces merge to be both a display and a wearable piece of jewelry into a single art work.
Measurements: The branch (base for display) measures 27". The drop on the lariat is 5 1/2", and the chain is 24" adjustable to 25". Counterbalance measures 2 1/2".
