About

Statement Jewelry featuring Real Butterfly Wings

Hi all! My handmade studio was featured on the Etsy Blog's Inspiring Workspaces:
https://www.etsy.com/seller-handbook/article/inspiring-workspaces-neile/28913329232

My name is Neile, and I wear all the hats here at neile.etsy. One girl: buying supplies, making, making, making, selling, packing and shipping all from my (sometimes lonely) home studio here in small town New Jersey.

I create unique and colorful jewelry using real butterfly wings. The butterflies I use are farmed all over the world, and collected when naturally expired. They live out their short winged stage in a protected enclosure. Butterfly farming protects the natural habitat of the butterflies through conservation of the natural vegetation and leaves the wild butterfly population intact.

I turn these fragile beauties into heirloom pieces, by pressing them in hand-cut glass and encasing them with a silver alloy. This work began over ten years ago when I found a monarch butterfly dead in my yard. It was just so beautiful and so delicate so I wanted a way to preserve and keep it. The techniques and skills that I had been using in my stained glass work led me to much experimentation and evolution. Over the years, I’ve developed the line you see here on Etsy.

This work brings me such joy, I hope you appreciate it. Check out my portfolio at neilecooper.carbonmade.com, ‘like’ me on Facebook http://www.facebook.com/neile.butterflyjewelry and convo me with any questions, comments, or wholesale inquiries!
