  • using real butterflies in jewellery, help!

    Hallo all,
    I'm very new to crafts and also to this forum, but I was wondering if anyone could help me out with this. I want to use real butterflies as pendants for necklaces. I want to buy the butterflies without anything done to them yet and then find a way to get them on a necklace undamaged and protected. Could I somehow coat them with clear enemal? Again, I know nothing so any help and suggestions would be greatly appreciated

              Not nice but
              It's not as bad as eating animals that are enslaved and killed
              whereas the butterflies are taken from the ground when they were already dead, not killed? This is what i found on google anyway

                  I know but I dont think people can judge him if they wear leather and eat animals, same difference. (im a vegetarian so dont approve naturally!)

                  If a joke, extremely distateful.

                    I'm a vegetarian too so I think I can make a judgement - and I really am not comfortable with that post.

                        The poster's IP address was registered in Amsterdam - he was an idiot trying to be clever, nothing sinister, just stupid. Please don't get into the veggie/ vegan/ poor animal thing.............................it's a craft forum - with sporadic idiots!
