Item 6119 - "Wisdom and Hope" 999 Fine and 925 Sterling Silver Carved Textured Cross Butterfly Lab Sapphire Necklace

$143.20 $179.00

Butterflies symbolize the cycle of life and that cycle inspires endurance and the ability to conquer all challenges. I handcrafted, sculpted and carved both the Butterfly and the Cross and by laying the cross on top of the butterfly this amazing piece is truly 3-D. The name "Wisdom and Hope" comes from the Lab Sapphire which Sapphire is believed to give Wisdom to the wearer. The Butterfly and Cross both symbolize Hope which is the one thing that keeps us moving forward and striving for a better life in however someone wishes to define that. May the wearer of this piece I created find not only the beauty in the piece but uses it as a reminder that each of us can achieve whatever we truly strive to achieve.

I handcrafted this piece by blending 999 Fine Silver with 925 Sterling Silver to achieve a 960 Silver content which has strength but less tendency to tarnish. I carved the initial shape then hand sculpted the various unique components and layered these around the textured layer. I also added beauty to the back of the piece as well as hand stamped my name.

I include an 18" 925 Sterling Silver chain and also offer other lengths. I also beautifully box each item. I hope the wearer of this piece will feel the hope, wisdom and strength and know they can achieve anything with faith.

Frequently Asked Questions

Gift wrapping and packaging

For holidays I am offering holiday themed gift wrapping for $2 with a hand written name tag or personal message. I can offer all holiday wrapping including Birthdays, Anniversary, Christmas, etc. Be sure to leave me a note for which holiday wrapping you desire if it is not for Christmas. At no additional charge I package all items in beautiful boxes with ribbons. Unless you wish to wrap with specific paper yourself, you can present the item in the original packaging as I also make sure there are no price tags on the item itself. These gift wrap options allow you to have the gift sent directly to the recipient.

Care instructions

You should never use liquid silver cleaner. LIQUID silver cleaner is very harsh and can harm the metal over time as well as remove any patinas that were put on the piece intentionally. Body oils, hairspray, perfume, makeup...just to name a few...can cause Sterling to tarnish so use mild soap and water to clean the piece after wearing. Everyone's body chemistry is different and some people can wear sterling for years without tarnishing it. I personally have high acid content so I can tarnish a chain around my neck in one day. The best way to remove tarnish is with a Moonshine Jewelry Polishing Cloth. I will be offering these for sale in the future.
