Blue Morpho - Glow-in-the-dark pendant with an image of a Butterfly's wing set in a blue stone-like bezel
Science is beautiful – and now you can wear proof of that around your neck! This pendant features a stunning image of a butterflies wing in a hand made, stone-like blue resin pendant bezel – and it glows in the dark!
Butterfly wings are covered with tiny scales - this pendant features a close up macro photograph of a 'Blue Morpho' butterfly's wing where you can see the individual scales.
I take photos of the butterfly's wing, and I then print them on clear plastic backed with 'liquid mirror' to give it a shiny, vibrant finish. The results are placed into the pendant bezel and covered with an epoxy resin. A glow-in-the-dark resin is layered behind the image, so it can be 'charged' with normal or UV light to give it a long-lasting glow.
The bezel was created from a 3D printed design I made. I created a mold from the 3D print and use it to cast the bezel here out of a resin with an additive to make it look like stone.
The pendant is approximately 2 x 2 cm ( 3/4 x 3/4 in) in size. The pendant will be shipped with a velveteen or satin bag and a 45cm (18 inch) silver-plated brass chain. Let me know if you'd like a 60cm (24 inch) chain instead.
I can also make earrings that match this design - if you'd like a pendant and earring set at a discount, message me and we'll sort out the details. Also message me f you'd like a different size or another variant of this pendant - I like doing custom work.
Please note that the pendant is water resistant but not waterproof. Remove before swimming or showering.
I want you to be totally thrilled with your pendant - if you aren't, let me know within 2 weeks and I'd be happy to arrange a refund, and pay for the return shipping.
