Beautiful butterfly jewelry is handmade in Peru. Delicate wings are set in sterling silver frames behind thin panes of protective glass. Butterflies are not killed to make this jewelry; rather, the wings used are collected at the end of the butterfly's natural life cycle by trained workers in the Peruvian Amazon. This environmentally sensitive and sustainable program provides income for local families while preserving the rainforest. Butterfly jewelry is not waterproof. Please do not immerse.
