Beautifly Natural Jewelry {review}

"I saw a chance to reuse butterflies that had naturally expired at a local conservatory and I approached the manager with my proposition of making jewelry out of the wings. I made a few sample products and then was asked to begin a business selling the newly made butterfly jewelry within the conservatory's gift shop. The natural jewelry was very well received and I was able to set up a studio.
I am very excited about the business that unexpectedly became a reality in my life. I am thankful for all the opportunities that have allowed me to come this far. But most importantly I am delighted to be able to share these beautiful creatures in a creative way that can be admired and enjoyed for years to come.

We have a very unique review today from Beautifly Natural Jewelry - a shop on Etsy that offers laminated butterfly wing earrings and nature-themed accessories!
I don't know about y'all, but I'm an avid lover of the great outdoors, fresh air and all the beautiful creatures which God has placed on this earth for us to enjoy and protect. Butterflies have always been fascinating insects to me, with their dainty, frail forms and intricate wing designs.
So the concept of getting to actually wear earrings made from real butterfly wings really intrigued me.
I was sent two different pairs to review. This first one is from a Sulphur butterfly. You can find/purchase them here.
The wings are about an inch or so long.
I love the bright yellows in this pair. So lovely and full of sunshine!

This second pair is my favorite. They're Paper Kite wings and roughly double the size of the Sulphurs above. I love this length, and translucent colors. Find these earrings here.
What I love about these earrings is how, when you run your fingers over the laminated material, you can actually feel the veins of the wings - this is the real deal.
Both pairs are so unique and original - naturally.
They're very, very lightweight so they won't drag your earlobes down at all. In fact, you almost forget you're wearing them.

 Overall, I think this shop - and the products it offers - is awesome. I love how different and original the jewelry is. These are definitely earrings I will wear! I give both pairs a double thumbs-up, and that goes for the rest of Beautifly Natural Jewelry, too. Working with Bethany was a pleasure!
You should definitely check out her work. And like her Facebook page!
What do y'all think? Which is your favorite pair?
Note: I was provided these items from Beautifly Natural Jewelry in exchange for my honest opinion.


  1. That is so cool! Oh my goodness! I like all of them. I want a pair now!

  2. Thank you so much! It is so much fun to make these earrings and I love being able to upcycle these wings into wearable pieces of awesomely unique jewelry.
