Pale Swallowtail Sterling Silver Round Pendant Necklace --Papilio eurymedon
This common black and white butterfly is sometimes mistaken for the Zebra Swallowtail of Eastern North America. However, it's size and coloration on closer examination really set it apart with hints of blue and red within the wing structures.
There is one spring/early summer flight in Oregon, where one can witness hundreds of male butterflies drinking water at mud puddles and springs in forest canyons. Larvae feed on a variety of trees, with Ceanothus preferred.
One gorgeous Pale Swallowtail hindwing section, set in a 25 mm .925 sterling pendant.
Select 18 inch (1.8 mm width) or 24 inch (2.5 mm width) .925 sterling silver wheat chain. (Menenelaus pictured in 1.8 mm 18 inch chain, Giant pictured in 2.5 mm 24 inch chain)
