Made insect/butterfly jewelry and other insect art works for over 30 years. The butterflies we use come from butterfly farming projects and rain forest sustainable use systems. The butterflies live out their natural lives and are then harvested. By the marketing of these and similar sustainable use products, rainforests gain economic viability, creating a strong incentive to leave them in their natural state, while at the at the same time providing needed income for local peoples. We are licensed by the U. S. Department of the Interior to import insects. <br> <br>Groups of our insect art works can be found in personal collections across the nation, including those of many celebrities (Nicholas Cage, Claudia Schiffer, Johnny Depp, Bruce Willis, Robin Williams, Jonathan Demme, Peter Jackson, Harry Connick Jr. and many others).
