Our jewelry keepsakes are inspired by the wonderful heroes from nature. The 3 butterflies that you will make represent the following butterflies in nature
1. Our first butterfly with rich tones of pink, bright purple, red and gold accents draws inspiration from the American Lady Butterfly. The American Lady Butterfly is found more easily in the Southern US all round the year but can also be seen in the North East during the summer months. They are freely seen in places of little vegetation, covering meadows, parks, forest edges and vacant lots. Caterpillars enjoy Ironweed, Budrock and sunflowers and the nectar for adults is found in the common milkweed, Dogbane, Aster, Goldenrod and Marigold.
Our 2nd butterfly in the kit is modeled after the beautiful Gulf Fritillary Butterfly. It has gorgeous bright orange wings embossed with orange dots, and a black antenna. The Gulf Fritillary Butterfly love to hang out in open fields, city gardens and forest edges. Found primarily in southern and central USA, the Caterpillars enjoy maypops and passion vine. The adults search for nectar on shepherd's needle, lantana and cordias flowers.
Our 3rd special butterfly has bright yellow, blue, green and orange flowers with a hollow center on a white background for the butterfly wings. It draws inspiration from the Pearl Crescent Butterfly. Most common to the Eastern USA, this butterfly loves to hang out on roadside wildflowers, pastures and vacant lots. The Adults feed on nectar from flowers of Winter Cress, Swamp Milkweed and Dogbane. The caterpillars love to munch on Smooth Leaved Asters.
