There are always two butterflies, one white and its shadow, in their flight, they raise a fine dusting of copper color, both lives are green flames that are growing, and suddenly their beauty can be truncated, and it becomes a cold and superb beauty, richly bordered in gold dust. In the end, it does survive, but the physical and emotional consequences will last its entire life.
Curated Assembling Related To This Perspective
We have chosen these pieces as part of the proposal of what can be understood in a Watch with a Front Cover (ultra-high-end Haute Horlogerie) design for women. The pieces that we have selected are because their work can evoke the meaning in our proposal.
For us, meaning and purpose are objectives that can not exist without the other. We are all human beings walking next to our shadows like the “Two Butterflies”, and time and experience are the dust in our wings forever.
We hope that you will enjoy the selection.

Ines Arenas Jewelry Gallery Says Thank You…
…for staying with us through the article: “The Butterfly’s Shadow”.
For us, jewelry is an art form where others might think that jewelry becomes art through how it is presented.
But we believe that is the mixture between presentation and content that makes jewelry an art form. One doesn’t happen without the other.
Jewelry is a representation of our history and beliefs in symbols that have changed with the time to express our personal beliefs regarding politics, sexuality, religion, family, and even social status, since the Roman Empire in western civilization.
Jewelry, thanks to the internet, is going to become a language, a vocabulary, a way to talk, understood around the world because any art is about connection including Jewelry.
This is Why We Present Jewelry As We Do It!
But You, “The viewer is the last stroke in any jewelry piece”.
