During a recent visit to the Tucson gem and jewelry show, Sami Jack, founder of Sami Fine Jewelry, discovered unique pieces created from butterfly wings. They were transformed into wearable art by Peruvian artist Yolanda Ormachea, with each necklace or set of earrings permanently preserved in acrylic and silver. No two sides are the same.
(The above photos show two sides of the same pendant.)
Not only does Sami Jack have an affinity for butterflies and was immediately drawn to them, but she also recognized an instant connection to the upcoming Flutter at the Fountain fundraiser.
She purchased a breathtaking inventory and is currently selling the pieces at Sami Fine Jewelry. She has generously offered to donate 25% of all sales from the winged jewelry to the Fountain Hills Community Foundation as part of the Flutter at the Fountain events.
We are so grateful for her vision and eagerness to help our cause, and we encourage everyone to stop in and check out the one-of-a-kind jewelry, perhaps even pick up a piece that you can wear to our upcoming Flutter at the Fountain event on November 7.
Sami Fine Jewelry is located at 16704 E. Avenue of the Fountains, Suite 100.
