Announcement   🦋 My jewelry has been worn on the hit TV shows "This Is Us", "Law & Order SVU", "Pretty Little Liars", "Bones", & the new "Fuller House" reboot! 🐞

*I am currently on vacation. Therefore, my current processing time is 1-2 weeks.*

I specialize in handcrafted Real Butterfly wing jewelry, art, & nature gifts using ethically sourced recycled butterflies, moths, & other insects, as well as minerals & crystals! I developed my own process of embedding insect wings under magnified glass almost a decade ago. All butterflies are raised on butterfly sanctuaries & farms where they live their full lifespan (which averages 2-4 weeks) and then collected after they naturally expire so that they can be preserved into a beautiful work of art! Butterfly Farming actually helps to preserve rain forests and also assures the survival of natural butterfly habitats. I am a proud member of the Rainforest Alliance! I support and donate to the Rainforest Alliance, a nonprofit dedicated to preserving the rainforest and thousands of species that live in it, including the Blue Morpho Butterfly! :) These are my original designs CHRYSALIS STUDIOS © 2018 🐛

About

Chrysalis Studios: Eco Friendly REAL Butterfly Wing Jewelry & Art

No butterflies are harmed in the making of my art & jewelry! All butterflies are raised on butterfly farms and sanctuaries and allowed to live their full lifespan, which naturally averages only about 1 month and are then collected and sold. If you have ever been to a butterfly sanctuary where they allow you to go into the huge greenhouse tents with the butterflies, they sell these butterflies once they have naturally expired so that their beauty can be preserved and live on. Butterfly Farming actually helps to preserve rain forests and also assures the survival of natural butterfly habitats. Many of these farms & sanctuaries actually release a significant percentage of farm-raised butterflies back into the wild to help sustain the species.

I am a proud member of the Rainforest Alliance! I support and donate to the Rainforest Alliance, a nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving the Rainforest and the many species that live within it, including the Blue Morpho Butterfly!

The Chrysalis is the metallic protective shell that envelops and shelters the caterpillar as it transforms into a beautiful butterfly during metamorphosis. Chrysalis Studios preserves the beauty and wonder of real butterflies by once again cloaking their wings in a chrysalis of glass or resin to live on and be treasured as a unique piece of art or jewelry!

Most of the species I work with are from South America, Africa, & Asia, as the most vibrant butterflies are found on these continents. All butterfly jewelry is embedded within glass or resin enamel. All pieces are handmade and as unique as the butterflies they are made from!

Frequently asked questions
How long is your processing time?

I am on a short vacation. My current processing time is therefore 1-2 weeks. Processing time on artwork may be longer and varies by piece.

Can you expedite my order?

An upgrade to priority mail is offered at checkout. However, my processing time still applies. If you plan to pay for priority mail and still need it even quicker, I can sometimes shorten my processing time if specially requested PRIOR to purchasing. Send me a message and I will let you know what I can do to help! If you are in a time crunch, I can also let you know which items I have already made so that they can be shipped out sooner :)

How long does shipping take within the US?

Standard shipping within the US is then an additional estimated 3-5 business days. Or you can choose the upgrade to priority mail at checkout instead, which is estimated as only 1-3 business days. As previously stated, my processing time on jewelry is currently 1-2 weeks. Artwork may have a longer processing time and varies by piece.

How long does International shipping take?

International shipments normally take approximately 2-4 weeks (usually just 2 weeks in my experience, unless it is around the holiday season when shipments do tend to take longer). In some rare cases, international shipments can take up to 6 weeks.

Please note: A few select countries, such as the UK, sometimes charge their citizens VAT customs fees when importing items. If any customs fees are imposed by your country on international orders, they are the responsibility of the buyer to pay. These are taxes from your country to its citizens and have nothing to do with the seller. In fact, it is not possible or legal for a seller to pay these fees.

Where do you get your butterflies?

My insects are raised on butterfly farms and sanctuaries and allowed to live their full lifespan, which averages about 1 month, and then collected and sold so that their beauty can live on! Butterfly Farming actually helps to preserve rain forests and also assures the survival of natural butterfly habitats. Native people are encouraged to grow plants and raise insects opposed to clearing land for cash crops. I am a member of and donate to the Rainforest Alliance, a nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving the Rainforest and the many species that live within it, including the Blue Morpho Butterfly!
