WHAT IS CHRYSALIS STUDIOS?
The Chrysalis is the metallic protective shell that envelops and shelters the caterpillar as it transforms into a beautiful butterfly during metamorphosis. Chrysalis Studios preserves the beauty and wonder of real butterflies by once again cloaking their wings in a chrysalis of glass to live on and be treasured as a unique piece of art or jewelry!
WHERE DO I GET THE BUTTERFLIES?
The butterflies I use are raised on eco-friendly butterfly farms and sanctuaries. Most butterflies have a lifespan of only 2-4 weeks and are then collected, preserved, and recycled into jewelry so that their beauty can live on! Butterfly Farming actually helps to preserve rain forests and also assures the survival of natural butterfly habitats. Native people are encouraged to grow plants and raise insects as opposed to clearing land for cash crops. Raising and selling insects is the only incentive many indigenous people have to save their tropical forests. Many of these farms also release up to 20% of the butterflies they raise into the wild to add to natural populations!
