Butterfly Milkweed Pendant Necklace, Silver Prairie Jewelry
This fine silver pendant depicts an iconic plant of the praire: Butterfly milkweed (Asclepias tuberosa). Both butterflies and hummingbirds seek out the bright orange flowers for the nutritious nectar. They provide a pop of color to the rolling green prairie during the summer months.
This necklace is a representation of the special relationship between monarch butterflies and the butterfly milkweed. Butterfly milkweed is an essential plant for the survival of monarch butterflies, in more ways than one. Adult monarchs lay their eggs on the underside of the leaves, and, when they hatch, the caterpillars feed on the leaves of the plant. As they feed off the plant, they also ingest toxins of the plant that make it poisonous to other organisms, providing a defense against predators.
Habitat loss is the biggest threat to the dwindling monarch population, so planting butterfly milkweed in your gardens is a great way to support monarch butterflies and their survival.

CARE: Your order will come with a polishing cloth to touch up your jewelry pieces when needed. I oxidize (tarnish) and polish the highlights of most of my jewelry pieces to bring out the texture of the prairie grasses and wildflowers. This oxidation will come off if polished with the cloth. When polishing pieces, polish only the raised surfaces to keep the dark oxidation in place.
