Common Lime Butterfly
The seemingly abstract nature of these butterfly wings certainly make for an interesting pair of earrings. They offer a rich tapestry of earth-tones with slight touches of blue mixed in. This delightful butterflies Latin name is Papilio Demoleus though it aptly named the "Common Lime Butterfly", as its favorite thing to snack on are limes. Carefully handcrafted, I have sandwiched these selections of wing between two pieces of hand cut glass. Then using copper foil they are held together while I 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. With their curiously intricate details, you will surely enjoy sharing their finer points with your friends.
