Definitely the largest earring that I have to offer, you will be sure to make an impression with these real butterfly earrings. They offer a soft yellow that fades into a bright orange with a touch of black within and along its edges and wing tips. This lovely species name is Anteos Menippe and it is a member of the Pieridae family that can be found natively from Mexico down into South America. I have encased these butterfly wings in several layers of hand painted resin, following their gentle 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. Surprisingly light weight to wear, each of these wings measure approximately 2 inches in length and are suspended by hypo-allergenic earwire. These earrings will easily make a bold statement and you will enjoy plenty of positive attention when you wear them.
