Area Voices: Sea Love by Shelly, Jeweler Shelly Nelson

Shelly Nelson found a dead butterfly in her yard while living in Hawaii. The find inspired her to create a piece of jewelry. Today she receives shipments of dead butterflies from conservatories around the globe and breathes new life into them in the form of one of a kind, bohemian flavored earrings and necklaces. In addition to butterfly wings, her baubles also feature crystals and stones, all offset by sterling silver and gold. You can find Shelly and her work at art fairs around northern Minnesota in the summertime and at her Etsy shop and on her Instagram page all year!
