Butterfly, Flutter By!


Photo by Scotti Cohn
The butterfly is a well-known symbol of immortality and transformation. It life cycle gives us a profound and inspiring analogy for life (the crawling caterpillar), death (the dark chrysalis), and rebirth (the soul fluttering free on delicate wings). According to one of my favorite symbolism dictionaries, butterflies as emblems of souls are found as far apart as Zaire, central Asia, Mexico, and New Zealand. They appear on Christian tombs and represented the souls of slain Aztec warriors.

No wonder, then, that we love to adorn our bodies with butterfly shapes in all sizes and colors. Here are some of the jewelry pieces I have designed with a butterfly theme. You can purchase these items at my _ETSY SHOP_ or _ARTFIRE SHOP_. Simply type "butterfly" in the search field at either of those shops.
