Who made this product? The owner of Silver Tree Designs had witnessed failure of commitments from a closure of another fair trade company that he knew he had to step in and help.
Why is it ethical? Silver Tree Designs is a fair trade company that offers alternative employment to the illegal industries in the Amazon. The farmers gather only deceased butterflies and sell them to the silversmiths who cut the wings into shapes and designs that will make an appealing jewelry piece. After sandwiching the wing between two pieces of glass, the silversmiths cut and wrap the silver around the glass. They must hammer all the folds and then soldering for an air tight seal. Once they are polished and inspected, they are sent out the stores.
