Blushing Phantom Butterfly Silver Metal Torc, Pink Butterfly Wing Choker
This stunner piece is made with the species Cithaerias pireta, otherwise known as the blushing phantom and is a species of the family Nymphalidae. It is found from Mexico to South America.
I created this piece using the complete butterfly and soldering it to a fine silver hammered wire torc. One side of the torc has a wired crystal and swarovski crystals.
A beautiful statement piece.
ALL Butterfly and Moth Specimens are purchased through a licensed supplier through Environment Canada. The source of these specimens is attained from global butterfly farms. The winged butterflies & moths fly in freedom until naturally expired where they are collected by workers and packaged for shipping. These farms provide employment, education and repopulation of the reared species back into their locales.
Debra’s Divine Designs uses many recycled wings that collectors reject due to flaws or missing antennae and preserves them into beautiful wearable pieces of art that can be handed down for future generations to enjoy!
