Papillon Belle

Art & Design, Fashion

Anyone that knows me well, knows that I am absolutely in love with all things butterfly.  My day has just been made! I found these amazing pedants and jewellery from Papillon Belle. I’m hoping to order soon!

Morpho Zephyritis Real Butterfly Wing Cluster Pendant


Morpho Sulkowskij Single Real Butterfly Wing Pendant


Ornithoptera Priamus Poseidon Real Butterfly Wing Cluster Pendant

About the jewellery

“The average butterfly only lives between 1 day and 4 weeks, so I wanted to find a way to immortalize these beautiful creatures in pendants that can be handed down from generation to generation. The result is a unique range of jewellery made from exotic butterfly wings set in a sterling silver frame. You can choose to set the wing in glass or acrylic perspex. The wings are magically iridescent and constantly change colour as they interact with light. Both the front and back of the wing are visible and these are usually completely different.


Where do the butterflies come from?

The butterflies used in my jewellery are sourced from an organization that manages sustainable farming projects all over the world. The organization currently supports 125 people in 23 different countries.

Agricultural development has caused the natural habitat of a lot of butterfly species to become threatened, and their populations started dwindling. Farming programs were therefore started to enable farmers from third world countries to keep the rain forests on their land intact, while still providing a livelihood that paid better than mono-cultural crops. The breeding program enables thousands of butterflies to be bred. A portion of the butterflies are caught and sold, and the money generated from the sales ensures that the tropical forests, which are vital to their survival, are preserved.

By purchasing my jewellery, you are not only doing your bit for the environment, you are also providing employment for the families in third world countries who breed and raise these delicate creatures.”
