A large lovely butterfly site atop a sterling silver cuff. The stamp work around the butterfly reminds me of raindrops and flower petals. There are four large cabochons of Azurite and Chysocolla forming the wings of the butterfly. Twisted wire forms the delicate antennae of the butterfly.

Five carinated bands of sterling silver merge to create a strong cuff on each end. This is a wonderful fun cuff to wear with anything.
