This is a small Cynthia Moth top wing necklace. This moth is formally known as Samia walkeri-Saturnidae from China. It is used to produce silk fabric but not as domesticated as the silkworm. It can be found now in Australia, Africa, Korea, US and even Canada! But is native to China.

ALL butterflies that I use are farmed and not wild caught so that the natural populations of the butterflies are not being depleted by poachers. Through my art, this provides an opportunity for me to promote stewardship and conservation of each Butterfly and to educate people about the risks that many are facing.

The wings I use in my art pieces are purchased from a reputable dried bug retailer who has been in business for over 25 years. All of the butterfly wings are bred on farms all over the world. Whole communities actually raise and care for these beautiful winged friends of the earth. The specimens are used for education, inspiration, collectables and art and area exported all over the world. Not all of the butterflies bred on these farms are sold as specimens many are released into the wild to mate and maintain healthy species populations.

99% of the Wings I use are from imperfect or damaged specimens I have purchased that collectors can’t utilize due to a broken wing or antennae or leg. I can still use the broken wing for mosaic pieces and the other wings for my full pieces

My hope is that the wearer of my pieces will learn more about their new butterfly friend, and want to share their environment, where it comes from and how others can help to conserve it’s land and preserve the butterfly’s heritage. People everywhere will stop you and ask you about your piece, so it will be so empowering and fun for you to be able to share your winged friend’s hope for future generations to enjoy.

For more information on this or any other information on your Butterfly, Please convo me.
