Have you ever been to one of the butterfly houses in the US where a real butterfly might sit on you? These places do not have their own breeding programs, but rather contract this out to farms in the Amazon jungles and such. That's where these butterflies come from. Did you know that the average lifespan of a butterfly is only about twenty days? The butterflies used in our jewelry are "end of life" butterflies - those that have completed their natural life cycle.
