The Miami Blue Butterfly is so called because it lives exclusively around Miami in Southern Florida, and is blue. This small insect was thought to have become extinct in the 1980s due to habitat loss. In 1999 a few Miami Blues were found in a national park in the Lower Florida Keys since when breeding programmes have recovered the species, although it remains critically endangered. Our lighter blue and white bracelet celebrates the return of these beauties and hopefully their future prosperity as a species.
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 (including the Karner Blue and the Palos Verdes Blue) 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 approximately 17cm / 6.7 inches in length which may vary slightly with bead pattern.
