jennifer trask: bold butterfly jewelry

Jennifer Trask is my new favorite jeweler. She focuses on color and form by treating bits of insect wings, beetles, honeycomb, feathers and snakeskin as if they were gemstones.

Quite beautiful... Do you know if she kills the insects and stuff herself, or finds them or buys them from someplace? That part is not so beautiful.

I am not sure about this particular artist, but I do know there are companies from South America that collect and sell already dead insects.

I dont know about her but I have my own new company online and we sell real butterfly wing jewelry in sterling silver for excellent low prices. These butterflies were raised in BFLY farms in Peru and all around the world, since they only live 2-4 weeks some die early and these are ones used in the butterfly jewelry. Others that survive are release into the forests and Amazon. Its a wonderful cause because it keeps them from becoming extinct so at the same time when this jewelry is purchased you are helping butterfly population. Please visit my site: www.bflydesigns.com !
