Celebrate Transformation with a Monarch Butterfly Band
Butterflies are incredibly inspiring, not only for their grace and beauty, but as symbols of transformation and metamorphosis. With a nod to our current Covid cocoon and all its silver linings, we re-launch the Nice Transformation ring. This design, originally sculpted in silver clay, is based on the patterns of actual Monarch butterfly wings.
There’s never been a better time to set this ring in flight. We’re in our cocoon, transforming and growing stronger and more resilient and ready for the next chapter. Each day brings us closer to a new beginning. We will emerge from this pandemic and these cocoons more adapted, evolved, focused on our key priorities and ready to take flight into the future.
As children we gathered the zebra striped monarch butterfly caterpillars. My sisters and I put them in jars with milkweeds to watch them transform. Even the milkweeds were magic. When you peel back the green outer layer the floating seeds are so perfectly arranged, with the seed heads like scales of a smooth, small, white fish. Each scale held a wish of its own and I never grew tired of making wish after wish after wish.
One wish was to someday see the great migration of the Monarchs. If you’ve perused the blogs at A Nice World or seen our Nice Adventures highlight on Instagram, you know that travel is high on the joy list. Of course, witnessing the monarch migration is on the wish list for future travel.
The Future is Right Around the Corner
Today we wish not only for that future, but for health, happiness, and for retaining what we’ve learned in this experience. We wish to hold our new priorities dear, to find joy in all things large and small. As I created this Butterfly of Transformation ring, I imagined thousands of monarchs migrating and changing the world as iconic pollinator species.
I believe the same thing is happening now, with a transformation happening across the country and the globe. I love everything about these magical little flying beasts. If you’d like learn more, take a quick click to National Geographic.
