I love the butterfly =O So intricate. Did you do the wings as separate plates first and then solder them together?

yep I wanted to stay true to the way butterfly winds are connected to the body so the wings are two pieces soldered together

That's beautiful, but it looks so insanely delicate! Is it a purely decorative piece, or does it stand up to being worn very well?

Well, I wore it while typing on the computer...but I haven't really worn it anywhere else.

I would imagine that it should hold up pretty well if my craftsmanship is up to standards.

It's absolutely gorgeous regardless, I'm totally jealous of your jewelry-making ability. ;)

The rings look cast, but how did you make the butterfly (particularly the wings)?

The rings were actually carved (with small files) and the wings were silver sheet metal 22 gauge, which I pierced and sawed out...with really tiny saw blades. The wings are four separate pieces since I was trying to remain faithful to how real butterfly wings were structured. I soldered them together and then onto the body hinge.
