The brilliant coloring of the Madagascan Sunset Moth has made it a popular choice for use in jewelry going back to the Victorian era.
London, Ontario, Canada (PRWEB) August 25, 2015
Debra Lynn Jeffries, owner of Debra’s Divine Designs (http://www.DebrasDivineDesigns.com), will gift her individually handcrafted bubble-domed Madagascan Sunset Moth Necklace to celebrities attending GBK’s 2015 Primetime Emmys Luxury Gift Lounge, in association with California-based The Artisan Group®. A specially designed women’s statement necklace and men’s bracelet will be showcased on display at The Artisan Group exhibit.
The gifted necklaces feature wing fragments from the Madagascan Sunset Moth (Chrysiridia rhipheus), which Debra has artfully arranged and showcased under 18mm wide, dual-sided glass domes. The dome magnifies the intricate details of the wings and allows them to be visible from either side of the pendant.
The pendants have a tiny copper Swallow bird charm. The pendant with charm hangs on an 18-inch copper chain. Celebrities will receive their pendant packaged in a black swirl box with a blue ribbon and an oval Debra’s Divine Designs label.
Famous world-wide for its spectacular beauty, the Madagascan Sunset Moth is one of the most colorful of the Lepidoptera family, and is widely sought after by collectors. “The brilliant coloring of this moth has made it a popular choice for use in jewelry going back to the Victorian era,” remarks Debra. “I love the fact that I can use both the front and back side of the wings; the latter display stunning shades of red, magenta, green, orange and black that add a beautiful vibrancy to the pieces.”
Debra uses only ethically sourced wings in her jewelry collections. She notes that the butterflies and moths she uses fly in freedom on global butterfly farms until they naturally expire. There, workers collect them to be distributed to local dried specimen suppliers.
The women’s statement necklace showcased on display is called The Gathering, and features three butterfly focals nestled together on a substantial, silver-plated chain. In nature, some of the butterflies used have a flashing that appears as various shades of violet and blue when in movement.
“With this piece, I wanted to create an eye-catching visual display that demonstrates community, beauty and the magic of nature,” notes Debra. “Just as with the varied elements of nature that occur in jungle and forest settings, the individual elements are uniquely beautiful but when viewed together, the result is breathtaking.”
The men’s bracelet is a simple oval domed owl butterfly, with lava and wood beads. The piece has a casual yet artistic vibe that is perfectly suited for fashion forward men who enjoy spending time outdoors and wish to celebrate the beauty of nature via their accessories and attire.
Debra’s Blue Morpho Butterfly Wing Earrings have been worn by actress Nakia Burrise (as Patty Pritchett) on episode 401 of The CW Network’s Hart of Dixie. Her jewelry has also been included in exclusive The Artisan Group gift bags prepared for Earth Day 2014 and GBK’s celebrity gift lounges for the 2015 Golden Globes, the 2013 Primetime Emmys and 2014 and 2013 New York Fashion Week. Numerous blogs, including ImNotEvenKidding.com, Shoply.com and HouseEcoFriendly.com, have featured Debra’s jewelry designs. A Morpho Butterfly Wing Necklace was photographed on Ariel D. King, winner of the 2014 Queen of the Universe pageant.
