I am making a new Real butterfly jewelry, and try to find customers worldwide, but don't know how to let people come to me. I think I can share the ideas here, maybe someone can help me.
Now around the world, many people make Real butterfly jewelry, but rarely can protect them well, and don't look good too, I can make them in perfect. I think my products will be welcomed by market.
My main problem is don't know how and where to find customers.Anyone can give me some suggestions?HuhHuh?

I can give you a suggestion!
Stop using real insects! Let them be and live there rest of their live in peace without being hung up around someones neck or on a bag. There is enough products out there to make it look like real insects with them actually being real. Use those and leave the sealife and insects alone!

Sorry let you feel angry!!
I should make it clearly, the insects and butterflies are raised by farm for business, just like raise the turkey for food. So, i don't think it is bad in eatting a turkey,right?  Smiley

I'm sadden to hear that you raise them on farms.
I also think eatting turkey is wrong but that is beside the point.
Maybe you could offer fake butterfly jewelry for those people that dont agree with using living things as accessories.
They have amazing fake butterflies avalible at most craft stores.
This is on topic merely offering suggestions.

I agree - I think its strange and don't agree with it. Living things are not accessories nor are they humans to be raised for a business and killed (neither are turkeys!), and besides I really dont think you are able to send that internationally anyways.

I really like your products!!!
I would suggest opening up an etsy account (www.etsy.com) try selling retail and not just wholesale.
Otherwise participate in craft shows and gift fairs.
I think your company could do really well. You might just need to advertise and get more exposure.

I looked through your website and they look really nice. I think a good idea would be to have an informational page that talks about the practices of how you keep the insects and how you go about 'collecting' the wings and such. I'd also suggest looking up custom laws to see if shipping jewelry with encased insects would be allowed. I know a lot of countries don't allow living organisms, but you should be okay with dead ones that are encased - but you should look them as well.

Thanks all of you to give me the advices, and welcome the criticisms too.
Metal Vyxen and girls_on_film, you two are so kind, really like you. But without food and support by animal and plant, human will be die soon. Even you are vegetarian, it is the same way you get the support from wild, by others(we support by others, we can't live by ourself, in my view any have its life, no matter stone, apple, plant,turkey....., when you think it deeper, you will find out).  Do you know butterflies, when they can be flying, they only can live only few weeks? What I wrong if we keep them in beauty after they die?? And people can enjoy the beauty of them?
Darkest_Faerie, thank you, I am planning to do that, but there is one problem, shipping cost is high in international express, 20USD/0.5kg, but if anyone can buy few pcs will be ok, do you think people will buy few pcs in one order at (www.etsy.com)?  Yes, we plan to go gift show, wish can find more customers. If you know anyone wholesale gift, please help me to introduce our products.  Smiley

onelastminuet ,yes, it is a problem. We are allowed by goverment to do this business. The species of our insects and butterflies are normal, not in the protestion of list, can export and import.

People might buy them a few to an order...I wouldnt say more than 2 or 3-but that is just my opinion...unless they are reselling.
