Fire of the Earth Jewelry is one of Utopia’s original artists. With beautiful designs, hand created details and genuine materials; this line has been a true favorite over the years. Teresa Dunham has been a wonderful friend and partner to Utopia. We love seeing her and little dog Nicky any time they come to see us!

But now, we want to tell you about one of our favorite items that Fire of the Earth brings to the table! Teresa is the artist that brought Utopia, Butterfly Wing jewelry. This jewelry is stunning, natural, and quite breath taking. The Butterfly Wings have become one of our most celebrated collections.

The average butterfly only lives between a single day and 4 weeks. Fire of the Earth, aims to immortalize these beautiful creatures in pendants and earrings that can be handed down from generation to generation.

The result is a unique range of jewelry made from exotic butterfly wings. Some of the wings are magically iridescent and constantly change color as they interact with light. In the pendants, both the front and back of the wing are visible and these are usually completely different. This helps the butterflies camouflage themselves in the wild.

The butterflies used in Fire of the Earth jewelry are sourced from an organization that manages conservation projects all over the world. The organization currently supports families in many different countries.

Agricultural development has caused the natural habitat of a lot of butterfly species to become threatened, and their populations have started decreasing. Sustainable farming programs were therefore started to enable farmers from third world countries to keep the rain forests on their land intact. The breeding program enables thousands of butterflies to be bred.

By purchasing the Butterfly Wing jewelry, you are not only doing your bit for the environment and the butterfly species that depend on it, you are also providing employment for the families in third world countries who breed and raise these delicate creatures.

Teresa will be at Utopia, June 26th, 2016 for a sample sale! Collections featured include; The Butterfly Wings, Amber, Handcrafted Fused Glass Earrings, and Silver Rocks – Natural Gemstones set in sterling silver. Try to make it out to a wonderful event! Meet the artist and find extraordinary pieces from unique, one of a kind collections.
