Mini Monarch Butterfly Necklace | Cork in Test Tube and Wood Cube
Do you love butterfles?
Imagine for a moment we are a single cell among the millions of cells that make up a caterpillar. Our little world has been operating like a well-oiled machine and creeping along most predictably until one day the machine begins to shake and shutter. Systems fail. Cells begin to commit suicide. There is a sense of doom and darkness.
But, from within the dying population of cells, a new breed of cell starts to immerge. They are called imaginal cells (really how cool is that).
Clustering in communities they devise a plan out of the wreckage. They create a great flying machine - a butterfly - that enables the survivor cells to escape the ashes of the caterpillar world and experience the unimaginable (and yet not unimaginable because it is the imaginal cells that did it) beautiful butterfly world!
Don't you love them even more now?!

Cork is the bark of the cork oak tree.
