I recently did the whole life cycle butterfly thing at tyhe school I work at and one of the butterflies didn't make it. I would really love to make it into a beautiful pendant and earrings but I'm not sure whats the best way to do this. Can anyone help me?

You could try casting it in resin, although resin casting can be tricky until you get the hang of it. You can find resin at most large craft stores- make sure the directions are easy to understand, since the mixing ratios vary by brand.
Or, maybe you could laminate them? It would be easier and a lot cheaper.
Maybe practice on some tissue paper first.
