Cramers 88 Pendant

The Cramers 88 (Diaethria clymena) is named for the "88" figure on the butterfly wings and the botanist who discovered them.  The top of the butterfly wing is black with a blue stripe.  This striking red and white with black stripes is the underside.  

The butterflies are collected after dying naturally at the end of their full-life cycle in the equatorial rain forest. The delicate butterfly wings are skillfully prepared and set in frames by Peruvian crafts people. The butterfly wing fragment is set between two thin sheets of glass-like resin and framed in a silver alloy.  Some of the butterfly wings have patterns that differ from side-to-side, making them reversible.  This environmentally-sensitive program provides income for local families while encouraging conservation and a sustainable lifestyle.
