This small moth was collected after its natural death and carefully preserved, then electroplated in 100% copper with a colorful welo opal. The opal has been left open on the front and back to allow light to pass through and illuminate the colors within.
The moth, like the soul, is attracted to light - the moth is known as a symbol of the soul's quest for truth. The opal is also a symbol of truth, as well as love and hope. The moth itself measures just under 2 inches across.
This piece is designed to wear choker-style; the chain measures only 13 inches. If you would prefer a different length of chain or leather cord, please include a note at checkout.
All electroformed jewelry includes a copper care sheet as well as a jewelry polishing cloth to keep your piece looking its finest.
