I have been working with butterflies since 2002. My butterfly art and butterfly jewelry have been featured in celebrity gifting suites at the Sundance Film Festival and the Oscars

All the butterflies used in frames and jewelry are raised in butterfly conservatories around the world, not killed. They live their full life and are ethically sourced and collected. It is a very "green" process, and provides jobs to people to collect them instead of poaching, and diminishing species and clear-cutting the rain forests.
All insects are imported legally. Many of the species are raised or ranched on farms specifically for the industry, which provides a source of income in those countries. In this way habitat protection is recognized and the insects thought of as a renewable resource, giving great creedence to the statement "selling insects to save insects".

*Quote from Larry J. Orsak Ph.D. (World Wildlife Fund advisor)
"...The fact is, buying tropical insects for your collection may be the best investment you ever made in tropical forest protection."

Additional policies and FAQs
I love doing custom orders, so message me if you are interested in a certain butterfly in a different color pendant, ordering multiples, or looking for a certain color.
Each butterfly wing pendant is handcrafted for durability but is fragile as its made of glass and delicate butterfly wings and will break if dropped against any hard surface! While they can withstand some slight moisture, please DO NOT submerge, shower or swim while wearing. Clean with a slightly damp soft cloth.
PLEASE NOTE: pendant pictured may be different than the actual item you receive, as each wing and placement is two are exactly alike! If you would like a picture of the actual pendant you will receive, please message me and I will be happy to email you a picture!
