Breathing is Seeing Wall Adornment
Calling on the imagery of the eye, this piece of HartVariations art can bring protection and transformation to your space. In the center, a circle of glass encases the dazzling blue of the Blue Morpho butterfly wing, like the bright iris of the evil eye, the shimmer of the sun on the water, or the sky on a clear day. Curvilinear metal work expands outward, playing with negative space. This airy structure is bordered by rays of trapezoids encasing delicate snakeskin shed, from which single dainty chains dangle like feathery eyelashes or poignant tears. The open forms, translucence of the snake shed, and sky blue butterfly wing remind us to breathe deeply, look closely, and embrace metamorphosis.
This art is intended for wall adornment and is not suitable for wear.
This piece measures 4 1/4" in length by 3 1/4" in width and hangs a full 6 1/2" including the oxidized sterling chain detail.
Please note this item is MADE TO ORDER and therefore WILL NOT SHIP until 1-2 weeks after you place your order.
As this item is hand-made to order, each element (butterfly wing, feather, snakeskin, skull, etc.) is unique in its own way, and may vary slightly in the finished piece. There may also be a difference in size of up to 1/8". The focal-piece is constructed with lead-free silver solder, oxidized, and polished.
All of HartVariations materials are cruelty-free and ethically sourced with great care. We are dedicated to No-Harm principles in our work. Please visit the FAQ page of the website to learn more.
PIECE CARE: Please handle this piece with great care, avoid water and chemical cleaning products. To remove dust simply wipe with a soft cloth. Because of the stained glass medium we work in, we are able to use delicate materials from nature that are very heat-sensitive. Too much heat and the wings change color, sometimes losing the vibrant magic that makes them so special. The metal in our work is an alloy of silver and tin, which melts at a lower temperature than sterling. We 100% stand by our work and have sold thousands of pieces in the eight years we've been in business, with a very small number needing repair. The same way you would take care of a silk blouse, please consider the medium in the treatment of your piece and approach with intention and care.
SHIPPING: Please be sure to read the shipping and policies information before your purchase.
