This fairly traded jewelry is hand crafted using real butterfly wings. Part of a sustainability project in Peru’s Amazon, the Shipibo community raise butterflies to preserve their traditional way of life and prevent deforestation of their lands. No butterflies are killed; they are collected when their life naturally ends. The breeding of butterflies adds to the jungles biodiversity. The jewelry is completed in a small workshop located in Lima, Peru.
