I Still Get Butterflies

Although the Irish word for butterfly is féilearcán (pronounced fell-er-kun), dealan-dé is a more ancient term for these delightful creatures in old Irish. The word also refers to the brightness or lightning of the Gods.  That the butterfly shares the same name as the fire of the Gods must somehow indicate great magnitude.  In Irish folklore, it was believed that butterflies could readily pass through the veil between this world and the magical realm. 

This butterfly brooch won't help you pass into the magical realm but it will make you feel very pretty.

Hand made in Ireland and is hallmarked by the assay office in the heart of Dublin Castle.
