This one-of-a-kind Karner Blue Butterfly is scrimshawed on a natural shaped fossil walrus tooth. It is 1 1/8” length and 1 ½ ” at the widest. The beads I used for this are glass and bone and it hangs at 21″. A nice lobster claw style clasp makes fastening it a breeze. This is packaged in a gift box.
The Karner Blue Butterfly is a unique little insect and native to the North West Ohio Oak Openings region. This little sky blue insect is on the endangered species list, is so very special to me. The wild lupine that this butterfly has landed on is not only their sole source of food but also provides nesting and habitat. I am lucky to be able to see these little butterflies where I live – they are a favorite if mine to scrimshaw.
