Our family business started with Matthew consigning his handmade butterfly shadowbox frames at our local art center. The director labeled them "Butterflies by Matthew" and we've rolled with that name ever since, but it doesn't reflect who we've become.
Our new name, Sagebrush Butterflies, reflects our regional focus on Pacific Northwest eastern desert butterflies and moths. The species we raise and collect can almost all be found in sagebrush country. We've kept our iconic swallowtail-inspired logo to remain recognizable as everyone gets used to the new name.
We're also excited to introduce a new line of stainless steel pendants that will be replacing the nickel-free metal alloy line that we've been using since Catherine first started pulling wings out of Matthew's "tin o' mistakes." We're also working on more designs of double-sided locket-style pendants. All of these will be added to the website over the next month.
We hope you're as excited about these changes as we are. As always, we appreciate all the support we receive from customers and friends! May you all have a wonderful 2020!
