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.
Ovarian cancer is the fifth most common cancer among women. It strikes one in sixty-nine women and causes more deaths than any other kind of female reproductive cancer.
