These earrings were originally created as a pendant by Mike Maixner in 1984 as a birthday gift for his wife, dancer Danalee Maixner. He later recreated the "Pas de Trois" (dance for three) Butterfly Ballet pendant in response to his wife's death from ovarian cancer - as a tribute to her life and her love of dance. A portion of the sales of all Butterfly jewelry goes towards awareness and funding in the battle against ovarian cancer, and towards fostering the love of dance.
