Enjoy natural elegance with these real butterfly earrings. Each wing features earth tones from rich browns to a nice translucent amber. 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. I have encased these butterfly wings in several layers of hand painted resin, following their delicate form to create a very natural appeal. The resin that I use is clear so what you see are the natural colors of the butterfly. This resin does transmute the colors slightly as it turns the wings semi-transparent giving them an appearance very much like stained glass. Extremely light weight to wear, each of these wings measure approximately 1 1/2 inches in length and are suspended by hypo-allergenic earwire. Charming and quite elegant, these earth tone lovelies are a natural beauty to behold.
