Undoubtedly they have a magical presence as they gently flutter from flower to flower during a glorious summers day. Give a gift of grace and beauty with this Butterfly Necklace.

The butterfly beckons us to keep our faith as we transform our lives

There is a legend that honours the butterfly as one of the most emblematic totem animals. Because of the butterfly’s extraordinary process of metamorphosis, the Butterfly is a mighty animal to call to when you need support in times of transformation, whether it’s at work, a relationship, or for the self. The butterfly entices us to keep our faith as we transform our lives. The Butterfly Necklace is the ideal gift for anyone needing a reminder to keep the faith as they go through all-important life stages.

The incredible legends and myths behind the butterfly

Legends from Native American tribes thousands of years ago have various myths and folklore concerning the butterfly. Some tribes, associate the butterfly with sleep and dreams. They believe that our magical dreams are brought to us in our sleep by a butterfly. Tribeswomen would embroider the beautifully curved shape of a butterfly and its’ wings onto a small piece of buckskin and tie it to a baby’s hair or on the baby’s clothes to encourage the little one to have sweet, sweet dreams. Many cultures place a deep spiritual connection with the butterfly. According to the legends and myths of the Pueblo tribes of southeastern Arizona and northwest Mexico, the Butterfly played a part in their formation myth. The creator is said to have taken the most beautiful colours of all living things and placed them into a magical bag. Giving the magic bag to the children, opening it as beautiful multicoloured and patterned butterflies flew out, enchanting all that witnessed their unique creation. Ancient legends and myths also believe that the butterfly would carry hopes and wishes to the spirits. To be able to do this, one must first catch a butterfly without harming it and then whisper wishes to the butterfly. The only one who will know the wishes that the butterfly carries beyond will be the spirit himself. According to the myth, a dream given to a butterfly shall always be granted, in exchange for setting the butterfly free once more. This tale especially inspires our Butterfly Necklace, and we say is symbolic as the keeper of your best secrets. Such mythology behind the symbolism of the butterfly makes the Butterfly Necklace an ideal gift for that special one in your life.
