$ 2,400.00

A fantastic show stopping butterfly maiden necklace with twenty eight large pink pearl beads - carved by Ray Tsalate and delivered to Sunshine Studio's front porch in September of 2020! The butterfly maiden seemingly floats thanks to the hook inlaid to the back of the wings and five pink small pearls space the top of the maiden's head from the twenty eight large pearls - fourteen on each side. The maiden has penn shell inlaid eyes, a Mediterranean coral circular inlaid mouth and a dark mother-of-pearl feather inlaid to her hair. Her manta/dress has four jet inlaid triangles with four variscite dots inlaid in their centers'; representing rain clouds and rain. Pipestone is inlaid into the incised lines on the bottom of the maiden's shawl symbolizing fringe plus the wings are inlaid with lapis paste. The circular clasp also has ten pink pearls preceding it. Ray has told us that the pearls symbolize bounty. The butterfly maiden is the bringer of blessings - spreading her bounty/love/virtue equals realized dreams, creativity & abundance!
