Announcement    🦋 My jewelry has been worn on the hit TV shows "This Is Us", "Law & Order SVU", "Pretty Little Liars", "Bones", "Fuller House", & "Marvel Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.! 🐞

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 © 2019 🐛

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!

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 tone / 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 TONE / PLATED VS. REAL STERLING SILVER:

Silver tone metal is a silver plated iron alloy. The amount of real silver in "Silver plated" jewelry is extremely minuscule, if any. 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 tone / 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 TONE / PLATED VS. REAL 14K GOLD FILLED:

Gold tone metal is a gold plated 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!
