Cynosura Eighty-eight Hindwings
Fun fact! Known as the “BD” butterfly or the Cynosura eighty-eight. The common name refers to the markings on the underside of the hindwings, which resemble the letters "B" and "D". It is found in Amazonia, from Colombia to Brazil, and to Peru and Bolivia.
All creations come from nature, and will vary in color and pattern. Since they lived natural lives, they may also have small imperfections.
All earrings are 925 silver unless special ordered.
Butterflies have relatively short lifespans, with most only living a few weeks. Therefore, butterfly farms have a constant supply.
Sources of my specimens include: entomology supply companies, butterfly farms, entomologist collections, donated pets & locally found dead. No creatures are harmed for the creation of my art! Everything I use has already passed, and I'm giving it a new life by recycling it.
