Silver Tree Designs knows how important honest business practices and fair wages for employees are. That’s why they have committed to bringing beautiful Fair Trade jewelry to customers all over the world.
Founded in 2011 by Stuart Smith and his wife, Silver Tree Designs has one of the most unique stories behind their jewelry that you’ll ever hear.
While working with his wife in the fair trade movement in Peru, Smith discovered a special project that the Peruvian people were working on. They were attempting to preserve the traditional way of life in the Amazon through sustainable butterfly breeding. Silver Tree Designs started off helping this project move forward and ensure its success, but they discovered a completely new opportunity for change while working with the Shipibo Indigenous community. When the butterflies natural lifespan came to an end, they started turning their wings into colorful and unique high-quality jewelry with the help of a small group of silver artisans in Lima, Peru.
Through Silver Tree Designs’ butterfly jewelry program, and fair trade practices, they have been able to help the Peruvian community maintain a better quality of life and ensure a source of income for many people working in the country. Through more than 6 years of work in Peru, Silver Tree Designs has seen a lot of change in the community for the better.
Butterfly Wing Earrings
The Butterfly Wing Earrings made by Silver Tree Designs are absolutely gorgeous. Each piece is delicately procured once a butterfly has lived out its lifespan, and then carefully preserved in either sterling silver or silver plated nickel. Because each butterfly has its own unique wing pattern, you can be assured that each piece of jewelry bought from Silver Tree Designs will be unique in each and every way.
The earrings come in a multitude of different shapes, such as hearts, rectangles, circles, oblongs, and more! Of course, you can always get your earrings in the original shape of the wing, to preserve the beauty and grace of one of nature’s most breathtaking creatures.
Butterfly Wing Pendants
The pendants come in the same shapes as the earrings; heart, rectangle, oblong, circular, and wing. These pendants are the perfect accessory to a beautiful dress or gown. They will make your customers stand out from the rest of the crowd, and are great talking points for dinner parties. Your customers won’t be able to make it through a party without being stopped and asked about their beautiful Silver Treed Designs wing pendant!
