This necklace is made with the recycled wing of a morpho butterfly. It has been cut to be smaller than it's natural form to approximately 1.75"x1", perfect for a child, youth or petite neckline. I soldered the wing smooth and added droplets of solder around the wing and put an oxidized gunmetal like patina. Both sides can be worn to change the look so it is like having two pendants for the price of one. 50% of the proceeds for this piece will be donated to marchwatch.org to help aid and continue in the study of this north american migrating butterfly.
Naturally expired real butterfly wing jewelry is what Debra's Divine Designs is known worldwide for. The exquisite details and beauty of insect wings, such as the butterfly are so spectacular that we just had to devise a way to preserve them forever so that they may be worn and promote conversation about their short little lives and the importance of recycling our earth and preserving creatures big and small that inhabit it. Our designs are one of a kind and each piece is unique. Gift one to someone special or add to your own personal collection!
Please allow for slight variance in color and solder placement as working with natural materials means each wing is slightly different from one butterfly or insect to the other. Great care and attention to detail are always considered in each design creation.
Debra's Divine Designs produces quality and high end fine jewelry items all over the world. All items are created in Canada. Your purchase supports sustainably raised and bred insect farms globally which play an important role in Conservation programs. These farms use sustainable practices of raising insects for economic purposes for livelihood rather than jobs that destroy rainforests such as slash and burn agricultural farming and logging. It is important to support such conservation programs that teach these sustainable economic alternatives.
