These are among the smallest butterfly earrings that I produce and they make for quite a sweet and gentle statement. Each wing offers an earthy orange with a rich brown within its spots, along its edge and especially at the wing tips. This species name is Colias which is native to both North and South America but is better known as the "Clouded Sulphur". I have encased these butterfly wings in several layers of hand painted resin by following their flowing 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 and easy to wear, each of these wings measure approximately 1 1/8 inches in length and are suspended by hypo-allergenic earwire. Dainty and subtle in appearance, these earrings really are rather lovely.
