This magnificent collectible objet began as a rough sketch of an egg engraved with botanical specimens of butterflies with a flurry of butterflies hovering from above that would open to reveal one singular beautiful floating butterfly. For months this concept slowly came to life in carved clay models of butterflies fitted over the entire surface of the egg lifted on a finely turned classic base. The final design was poured in pewter and finished in 14k Gold. Our finest artisans at the Jay Strongwater Rhode Island workshop paint layers of translucent enamels to depict each butterfly in shades of amber, amethyst and crimson with hundreds of sparkling handset Swarovski® crystals. Inside the vibrant blue enamel stands out against the deep lavender enamel. The Sunset Egg Objet is limited to an edition of 50.

About Jay Strongwater:
Jay Strongwater's love of the elegant but vividly bejeweled objet—whether it's meant to rest on a tabletop or the graceful curve of a woman's neck—has led him on a journey through the worlds of fashion and home furnishings. He began his career while a student at the Rhode Island School of Design. After garnering raves for a necklace he'd made his mother, he took jewelry samples to open buyer days at some of New York's finest department stores, and soon a burgeoning business was born. At the age of 23, Strongwater met designer Oscar de la Renta, with whom he began to collaborate on jewelry designs for runway shows. The move to home accessories was delightfully serendipitous & organic. For the 1994 holiday season, Strongwater sent gifts of jewel-encrusted filigree picture frames to friends, fashion editors, and buyers, who immediately fell in love with the design. By 1998, his Jewels for the Home collection had supplanted his fashion business. In essence, Strongwater created his own niche: the jeweler turning his meticulous eye and art toward a world beyond a woman's wrists, neck, and ears.
