African Monarch

 Enjoy a touch of natural beauty with these real butterfly wing earrings. Their wings feature a rich light brown that gently darkens towards the tips which are speckled in white. The species name for this lovely butterfly is Danaus Chrysippus but it is most commonly known as the "African Monarch". It is a member of the nymphalidae family that can be found natively widespread throughout Africa and Asia. Carefully handcrafted by myself here at Studio9ten, I have sandwiched these selections of wing between two pieces of glass that I have cut by hand. Then using copper foil I hold them together so that I can skillfully finish with Lead Free Solder. Suspended by hypo-allergenic earwires, each earring measures 1/2" wide by 7/8" tall and they are surprisingly light weight and easy to wear. These earrings seem to have an innocent quality about them that will easily go with any earth-tones you may choose to wear.
