Ari's Butterfly

We've been getting the coolest custom order requests this month! We have a new "regular customer" named Emily, who ordered a sterling butterfly and then emailed me to make a special request that had the sweetest little story to go with it. Her son Coopers best friend Ari, was moving away. The butterfly was meant to be a going away present for her. Ari and Cooper

Emily requested a smaller chain as well as a special inscription which got me thinking that it would be more fun to design a whole new butterfly that was smaller in scale to the original (better suited for a 5 year old) and had enough room to comfortably accommodate the requested inscription.

"I love Ari"

I designed this necklace with the Inachis Io (Peacock Butterfly) in mind, hence the wing markings

"Cooper"

I absolutely love doing orders like this one and the other customs we got this week (I'll blog about them next). So if any of you have something you've thought about and wanted to get made or have seen anything on our site that you'd like to tweak--email us!
