All That Glitters: Butterfly Brooch Exhibit

If you find yourself in the San Diego CA area anytime soon, be sure to stop by the San Diego Museum of Natural History.  The All That Glitters: The Splendor and Science of Gems and Minerals exhibit explores the intrigue behind some of the earth’s most breathtaking creations. Among many spectacular specimens and finished jewelry pieces is a collection of 13 butterfly brooches created by Buzz Gray and Bernadine Johnston.
