The Karner Blue butterfly is named after its discovery in Karner, New York. Found today in the Great Lake States and New Jersey, the Karner Blue was extinct in Canada and other areas by 2000 thanks primarily to loss of habitat. Today the species is making a recovery as the Blue Lupine Flower, on which the Karner Blue is dependent, is being planted to save the species. Our Blue Karner bracelet is white - symbolic of life - with flashes of blue and gold to celebrate it's apparent re-rebirth both as a species and a caterpillar.
A butterfly's journey through life begins with rebirth - starting as a caterpillar it's patience in a cocoon is rewarded with graceful and spectacular wings and flight amongst the trees. It's a journey of rebirth which, in North America at least, has been repeated by three species of butterflies which have all returned from extinction. It shows just what can be achieved when there is a will to save endangered animals, no matter how small. The 3 bracelets in the Blue Butterflies set are also shown.
Handmade with glass beads, this stretch bracelet measures 17cm / 6.7 inches in length which may vary slightly with bead pattern.
