Those butterflies that die after completing their life and reproductive cycle are collected to give them a second life as an original, colorful and magical gem like a Butterfly.
Pieces made in collaboration with MUSHOS MUSUK, a Spanish butterfly farm, and its collaborators, whose objective is the educational dissemination, breeding and reproduction of butterflies for their release. NO BUTTERFLY HAS BEEN RAISED OR KILLED FOR THE CREATION OF THESE JEWELS.
Known for making one of the largest migrations in the world, it travels up to 4000km to hibernate. In Spain it can be seen in the Canary Islands, Cádiz and Malaga. Summer butterflies live less than 4 weeks, while those that migrate live up to 9 months. It is perhaps the most iconic butterfly.
