Celebrating the natural magnificence of the increasingly rare Asterope Butterfly found in South America, James Banks has created a captivating specimen hand-wrought in blackened silver and 18K yellow gold. The tiny articulated wings - with their naturally inspired details - connect to the body and the 18K yellow gold bale. It hangs from a 18K yellow gold chain and can be kept in its special hand-crafted wooden box with a map indicating its broad ranging habitat when fluttering around your neck.

New York / Los Angeles - The brilliant bicoastal collaboration between Adam Shulman and Heidi Nahser Fink has resulted in the magical collection of James Banks jewelry. Each meticulously hand-crafted piece is inspired by the natural world and its intriguing details as well as the eclectic and talismanic qualities of objects like the light bulb and monocle. The attention to detail is the captivating mainstay of this collection - from butterfly wings that move to a light bulb which opens and can be customized by adding tiny, symbolic objects and jewels. “We want people to get close, to get a conversation from it,” Shulman says. “We want them to come up to it and ask ‘What is that?’
