This is a unique piece of jewellery. It is handcrafted in The Netherlands with the utmost care. The pendant is made in copper or brass and covered in strong convex shaped glass. It comes with two lengths gold plated necklaces, so one can wear it in two lengths, or even a third length, when the 2 are connected.

The insect is real and since nature is unique it will vary in colour and size in every piece.

The butterflies we offer come from breeding farms in South America, Africa and Asia. They are bred in a protected environment and the farms create an eco-friendly butterfly habitat, which stimulates the local economy. The community has the opportunity to earn a living working at the breeding companies, rather than heading out to catch butterflies in the wild.

The breeding companies are not only positive for the butterfly population, but also help to protect the rainforests, plants, flowers and trees.
The butterflies are not exposed to natural enemies and can safely reproduce.
They are not killed for sale. Most tropical butterflies have a life span about 1 to 2 weeks.  After they die, they are dried and sold. 

Our insects are not part of the Convention of Washington and do not need CITES documents.
