With over 3,642 butterfly species found in Colombia (the world's largest variety) it was high time to add them to our line. It truly is a mariposa paradise!
Around the world, butterflies have functional and spiritual significance. Physically, they play a fundamental role in pollination and feeding other animals. Symbolically, Garden with Wings writes, they signify "spiritual rebirth, transformation, change, hope, and life. The magnificent, yet short life of the butterfly closely mirrors the process of spiritual transformation and serves to remind us that life is short."
Hand woven by indigenous Embera Chami artisans, these seed bead earrings represent a piece of Colombian culture, fusing modern designs with ancient tribal craftsmanship. To the Embera, butterflies are a good omen.
Each pair features beautiful bead detailing in a unique FOSTERIE exclusive small batch pattern.
Materials: Seed beads
Size: Approximately 2.5 inches wide, 2 inches long from post
Ashleigh notes: As if a piece of the sky has taken flight, the Blue Morpho Butterfly serves as a reminder to be at peace with your life, to feel calm and joy in your situation, and look for value in your existence. Due to their rare color not often found in nature, they are often seen as healing omens or 'wish granters'.
