I’m sure that this necklace is by Bernard Instone, the leaves on the front and back is typical of his style. I have never seen him use Butterfly wings before which I associate with Thomas Mott who was well known for making jewellery with butterfly wings. I have thought that their was some kind of connection between Bernard Instone and Thomas Mott with some jewellery which is definitely in the style of Bernard Instone but is marked for Thomas Mott,
As you can see it is a beautiful blue colour with those wonderful Instone leaves and the back were he used to also decorate with leaves, I can’t remember ever seeing the screw type wire in any of his jewellery, I certainly don’t have any with this type of feature. The third photo is taken with the sun on the pendant.
Many thanks for looking
