I found the Butterfly knot while surfing on the net. It took me some time to finally make it properly. It can be found more open inside the wings, but I like it tight better 🙂
I enjoyed playing with the bright silver beads and the coral cord. I think these colors really match together.
This necklace is made of a coral 2mm satin cord with bright silver metal beads and silver lined crystal seed beads.
It features a Butterfly knot as the pendant, and Button knots and beads as the chain.
With sliding Button knots as a closure, this necklace offers you a great choice of length.
Each knot has its own meaning in the Chinese culture.
The Butterfly knot is mix of Pan Chang knot, which represent longevity and is thought to bring good fortune to the wearer as well as those who view it, and Double Coin knots symbols of great prosperity and long life.
And the Button knot is a symbol of good luck.
So, as a mix of these Chinese knots, I hope this necklace will be, to its wearer, a lucky charm for a long prosperous life 😉
