Lets Fly Butterfly

About this design:

This is a butterfly that I hand craved, this was my first time to do this. I will keep practicing. I just love butterfly's they seem so free and happy. This is not antiqued yet, there are 2 holes in the wings and one in the tail. The last photo shows the back!!


999 fine silver
