Cindy-Lee Davies' Chrysalis Ornaments

These beautifully-designed butterfly ornaments, which were created by Cindy-Lee Davies from the LIGHTHY designgroup in Australia, are not just wall decoration.

Upcycled objects are usually one-of-a-kind creations and this uniqueness is something that consumers crave. The expression of individuality and concern for the environment now go hand in hand.
