Mini Butterflies neckpiece
A carefully woven piece of miniature butterflies in a sequence of black, and sunrise tones from red to light yellow. The same design also comes in shades of blue.
The perfect fine necklace, small and versatile yet full of colour and meaning! This piece has wand-woven by the Wixárika Tribe of Mexico. The ancient Mexicans so highly valued butterflies that they were used as a form of tribute, if they were alive, as well as ornaments or jewelry. Butterflies came to represent heroes and important people that had passed.
