Swallowtail Butterfly Pill Boxes PB-39


Pill box artwork is individually handmade in this beautiful butterfly gifts design, silver plated and diamond cut on copper then inlaid on this unique pillbox. The Blackfoot Indians believed that butterflies brought them their dreams while they were sleeping. It was customary for a Blackfoot woman to embroider a butterfly on a small piece of buckskin and tie this piece into the hair of the child. At the same time she would sing a lullaby to ask a butterfly to come and fly about to give the child pleasant dreams.
