Electric Green Swordtail
The exotic nature of these beautiful butterfly earrings are really quite lovely. They offer a fascinating abstract pattern of vibrant green set against a deep, dark background. Natively found in Central Africa, this species name is Graphium Tynderaeus, though it is far better known as the "Electric Green Swordtail". With a gentle touch I have skillfully encased these butterfly wings in several layers of hand painted resin by 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 and easy to wear, each of the wings measure approximately 1 3/4 inches in length and are suspended by hypo-allergenic earwire. Certainly, this pair will make for a conversation piece that you will enjoy letting folks know that they are in fact real butterfly wings.
