This beautiful pendant choker features the wing of a REAL butterfly, the Blood Red Glider. The wing sits beneath a glass cabochon measuring 12mm. The choker is black faux leather measures 14.25" and has a 2" extension chain. If you need the choker shortened, please let me know - I am happy to do that for you. A native of the Central African Republic, the Blood Red Glider (Cymothoe sangrias), is instantly recognizable. This rain forest species is a high flyer, soaring at altitudes of approximately 100-700m. They are also known to spend much of their day basking in sun spots closer to the forest floor. PLEASE NOTE Your choker is handmade to order. While your choker will be nearly identical to those pictured, because no two butterfly wings are identical, there may be some slight variation (including slight color variation) from those shown in the photographs. HOW MY BUTTERFLIES ARE OBTAINED No butterflies are ever harmed or killed in the making of my jewelry. I obtain my butterflies from butterfly farms and conservatories after they have been allowed to live their full lifespan and have died naturally. Butterflies are natural works of art! By creating jewelry using real butterfly wings, these amazing works of art can by preserved and enjoyed, even after the butterflies have passed on naturally. CARE & CLEANING INSTRUCTIONS I spend a great deal of time, effort, and love creating each piece of jewelry. While my pieces are water resistant, because of the delicate nature of the wings, they are NOT waterproof. Please remove before showering or swimming. To clean, gently wipe with a baby wipe. Avoid detergents and other harsh chemicals as well as traditional jewelry cleaners.
