These show-stopper earrings are made with real butterfly wings and sterling silver, making a unique gift for that special person in your life. Each earring is delicately crafted by talented artisans in Peru from the Silver Tree Designs group.
All Silver Tree jewelry is fair trade, handmade, and cruelty-free, as the wings are collected after the butterflies die naturally.
These particular earrings are made from wings of butterflies from the Chrysiridia Rhipheus and Sunset Moth species.
Artisan Info: Your butterfly jewelry purchase helps support the Shipibo Indigenous community, located in the Amazon Jungle along the banks of Huallaga River. Some of the most impoverished areas of Peru are located in the Amazon jungle. The butterflies have become a very important income generating resource to the Shipibo tribe and a means to safely maintaining their traditional way of life in the jungle.
