When I started working with butterflies, I began saving cool body parts not knowing what I'd do with them, just knowing I wanted to honor every part possible. A couple years later, I had sooo many insect heads in containers. I knew I needed to find homes for them somehow. Then, it hit me... most people like it when you give them a little head. I've been giving them as a gift with purchase to anyone interested ever since. The laughs it's allowed me to share have been priceless. And, I don’t know what you’re thinking, but it’s just a little head.

A lot of kids and curious adults like them, because they're cool to look at. They make excellent talismans of direction in life. Scientists have moved butterflies hundreds of miles off their migration route, and they find their way back!

PLEASE NOTE: Isms works with over 700 species of butterflies, moths, and other insects. You will receive whatever specimen jar(s) are currently available, as this changes frequently. Feel free to make requests and we’ll do our best to accommodate you or find a similar substitute! All heads used are fascinating.


Specimens are ethically sourced, helping to fund efforts in butterfly repopulation and land conservation. See our FAQ page learn more about our process, where we get our bugs; why we care about pollinator conservation; and how you can help.


Invertebrates on our planet have declined approximately 40% in the last 40 years. Monarch butterflies have plummeted in numbers so drastically that they are currently being petitioned for protected status under the endangered species act. There are 9 endangered species of butterfly in North America currently. Butterflies are long distance pollinators. We need bees to pollinate in about a 5-mile radius, AND we need butterflies to carry genetic diversity/strength (up to 55 miles in a day) with their pollination. I'd like to see us all do our small part to ensure insects have a place on our planet. I don't know about you, but I'd like to keep eating. The old-fashioned way.

Thank-you for your support of our efforts. Together we can do even more than we can alone!
