Make A Butterfly Wing Pendant

Saturday, April 22 from 10:00 - 11:00 a.m.

Butterflies are one of nature’s most dazzling masterpiece. Guests are thrilled to walk among hundreds of these vibrant beauties in the Butterfly Atrium, as they live out their short lifespan of only two to three weeks. Once the butterflies “age out,” they are carefully collected by Atrium staff, to preserve their brilliant colors and delicate scales.

Participants in this jewelry-making class will create their own stunning pendant necklace, choosing a portion of a butterfly wing. The pendant is made using a tray bezel, glass dome and epoxy clay – a simple technique with stunning results. Complete with a snake chain, the necklace will be ready to wear after a 24-48 hour curing process.

Participants will also accompany Associate Director Dan Babbitt on a personalized tour of the Butterfly Atrium. 

All supplies are provided.  

Class held in Hershey Gardens Education Center (located in The Children’s Garden)
