Butterflies (and moths) are one of the loveliest creatures on Earth. Their lifespan once hatched from their pupae is just 2-3 weeks. So it is wonderful to see their gorgeous wings preserved for much, much longer. Fellow Canadian, Debra Jeffries' real butterfly jewelry collection on Debra's Divine Designs really celebrates the beauty of these insects.

Debra explains the source of her butterfly wings, "Insect wings are attained from cruelty-free farms across the globe through a licensed wholesaler. These farms raise and care for the caterpillars to pupae to butterflies and the butterflies once hatched are allowed to fly in freedom until their natural death."
