Artist: Megan Brown

About the Artist: I am a maker and a creative type that lives in the hills West Virginia. I began my business in 2010 and after a few years, found my true passion and direction when I combined natural elements and jewelry. Our jewelry currently consists of two lines- Botanicals and Wings. I've also made some one of a kind pieces that combine these two elements! Each flower or wing is carefully preserved in resin, sometimes within a bezel and other times in the objects natural form. The process can take up to 3 weeks, depending on the structure of the wing or depth of the bezel. Our wings are obtained in several ways: 1.) Purchased from butterfly conservatories and/or butterfly farms- each in turn help the ecosystems (forests) of the butterflies and continued research of these beautiful insects, 2.) Found expired by myself, or friends/fans. I get asked all the time if I kill butterflies and the answer is a resounding no. I'm a lover, not a killer. Butterflies/moths are collected after they have naturally expired.
