Enamel Butterfly

Today, apart from normal shop work like repairs and making a gold shackle earring ( which I refuse to post...eeeuw)
I also finished this butterfly brooch. This is a cast 14kt gold piece and I used transparent blue and green enamels and orange and black. And basically the orange screwed it up. Luckily it looks better than the picture but if I had used another transparent enamel instead of opaque orange if would have been more....harmonious.
The bottom emerald is not black, like in the picture.
Hey I live and learn............but I bet this one won't sell quick.
