*COVID 19 SHIPPING DELAYS*: We work hard to ensure all packages are shipped out on time! However, the post office (and all shipping carriers) have been having more unplanned shipping delays than ever before. This is due to the Covid 19 pandemic. Please note that the "estimated" delivery timeframe in the cart at checkout is just that, an *estimate*. These estimates are provided by the United States Postal Service (USPS). The post office only gives estimated delivery dates, no guaranteed delivery dates. These estimates are still relatively accurate *most of the time* but Covid 19 has presented many challenges for all shipping carriers this year. Please expect the possibility of delays. We cannot control the post office of course. Therefore, we cannot personally guarantee any specific delivery dates. We are doing the very best we can to ship everything as quickly as possible for you. After that it is up to the post office! :) Please be patient with the post office and prepared for additional delays this year. Thanks for shopping small! :)

We specialize in handcrafted Crystal jewelry and Real butterfly wing jewelry & insect art using ethically sourced recycled butterflies, moths, & other insects! Jaclyn developed this process herself of embedding butterfly wings under magnified glass over 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! We 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 our original designs CHRYSALIS STUDIOS © 2021 🐛

CHRYSALIS STUDIOS: Eco-Friendly Real Butterfly Wing Jewelry, Crystals, & Gifts from Nature!

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! I love to include other natural wonders in my jewelry and artwork as well, such as crystals, precious gemstones, pressed flowers, and shark's teeth!

Can you expedite my order?

💫 An upgrade to priority mail is offered at checkout. However, processing time still applies. If you plan to pay for priority mail but 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 almost always have some ready-made items on a 1 business day processing time, just message me if you need help determining which items will ship in 1 business day :) *Please be prepared for USPS shipping delays, even on priority mail, as we get closer to Christmas*

How long does shipping take?

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! 🐛

What is the difference between silver plated and Sterling Silver?

Many of my items offer chain & earring hook upgrades to Sterling Silver, so here's why you should upgrade!

SILVER PLATED VS. REAL STERLING SILVER:

Silver plated or "silver tone metal" is an iron alloy. The amount of real silver in "Silver plated" jewelry is minuscule. Silver plated jewelry is costume jewelry grade metal.

Real Sterling Silver is 92.5% real solid silver, mixed with a small percentage of copper for adding strength. It is a high quality precious metal and is very durable and resistant to tarnish. It is hypoallergenic and safe for people with allergies and skin sensitivities. All my real Sterling Silver jewelry bears an authenticity stamp to show that it is made from real silver!

What is the difference between gold plated and Real 14K Gold Filled?

Many of my items offer chain & earring hook upgrades to 14K Gold Filled, so here's why you should upgrade!

GOLD PLATED VS. REAL 14K GOLD FILLED:

Gold plated or "gold tone metal" is a brass alloy. The amount of real gold in "Gold plated" jewelry is extremely minuscule. Gold plated jewelry is costume jewelry grade metal and prone to tarnish over time.

Real 14K Gold Filled jewelry contains over 100 times more real gold than "gold plated" jewelry. It is a high quality precious metal and is very durable and tarnish resistant. It is also hypoallergenic and safe for people with allergies and skin sensitivities. All my real 14K Gold filled jewelry bears an authenticity stamp to show that it is made from real gold!

Gift Message & Wrapping

🎁 All my jewelry is already packaged in a custom gift pouch ready to give to your friends and family! If your order is a gift and you would like me to send it directly to a friend or family member, just enter their address into the shipping information. There is a place at checkout to add your gift message! :)

We are glad to accept returns or exchanges for any reason! Just send us a message! :)

Normal returns should be sent back in their original condition (in their original pouch / packaging) with no signs of wear. Returns are refunded in full minus the amount we paid in shipping (unless waived due to an issue that was our fault of course!). A restocking fee may be applied to returns that are not sent back in their original condition, show signs of wear, or are missing parts (fee will be equal to any loss in value).
