Helping Protect the Rain forest.
When I first started doing butterfly wing jewelry. I wanted to support a great cause. I do not want butterflies to die unnaturally or cruelly.
After talking to several butterfly associations and butterfly farmers.
I found the perfect farm who was ethical. They allowed the butterflies to die naturally. Also the farm worked with USDA to contain virgin acres of rainforest.
This helped the rainforest from logging and deforestation. The farm also hires locals from the surrounding villages giving locals in a 3rd class country to provide for their family and have a sound income, supporting the local economy.
We work directly with farm, to not only save the rainforest but to bring up dwindling butterfly populations as well by breeding and releasing.
The Blue Goddess Co. is proud to be part of such a great movement to not only save the rainforest but to bring education and awareness to outside communities,
Thank you for your support and contribution to bring this dream and goal to mind.

Owl Butterflies are of the Caligo genus, meaning they have huge eye spots that mimic owl eyes to scare of predators. Caligo means darkness. These butterflies prefer to fly at dusk when their are less predators. Most butterflies fly in the daylight to keep warm. This is a very mythical and beautiful species of butterflies

Have you ever wondered why your past loved one comes to you in a butterfly?
I have had countless of customers tell me that butterflies are meaningful to them because a past loved one has visited them as a butterfly. Most of them tell me a blue butterfly flew into their house usually the basement and just hung out with them.
I decided to do some research and find out what it means and why their usually blue. I researched multiple sites and they all seem to say the same thing. After they transform from this life existence they are no longer bound or limited by the physical laws of this plan. They are able to manifest their energy into a tiny animal or insect. Usually a butterfly, because they are easy to spot and can fly to keep up with you. Usually they are bright and vibrant (like a blue butterfly) so you notice them. They are trying to send you a message that you are not alone, and they are still with you.
This is one of links I researched. you can read more here. https://thejollywidow.com/11-signs-deceased-loved-one/

Feb 12th 2020 Butterflies And Fashion
Butterflies have been a craze in fashion for decades since the mid 19th century. Lately you might have noticed that butterflies have been making a comeback in fashion. Floral prints are starting to get replaced with butterfly prints. More outlet stores like Urban Outfitters and Forever 21 are carrying more butterfly themed fashion. Celebrities are putting butterflies in their clothing lines.
I wanted to dive deeper into why butterflies have become a novelty in fashion. So Lets go back to where it all started from. The Mid 19th Century Victorian area.
During the mid-19th century, Japan opened trade with the West for the first time in more than 200 years. The influx of Japanese imports that followed inspired an intense fascination with Japanese art and culture. At that time, butterflies symbolized death and a soul on its journey into the afterlife. Women of the Victorian area became obsessed with the Japanese kimono and butterfly, more vibrant prints.
They felt the Kimono show cased the female figure more and was more modern than traditional garments. Bright, Floral, Birds And butterflies have been in fashion since. During the Victorian era these new kimono-Victorian dresses where a symbol of grace and elegance. Butterflies today are also considered a symbol of grace and beauty.
Why are butterflies still a staple in fashion today?For the same reason why it became so popular in the 19th century. It lifts peoples spirits, it makes them feel elegant, graceful, and beautiful. Butterflies also symbol change, and are considered to be messengers of the afterlife.
