There is simply nothing to compare to the iridescent beauty of the Morpho butterfly. The brilliant blue of its wings seems to shift and shimmer as the light dances across its surface. If you have ever seen one in person you know that photos will never do this wonderful butterfly justice. This glorious specimens name is Morpho Menelaus but it is better known as the "Blue Morpho" which is native to South America. 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. An absolutely stunning pair of earrings, you will certainly enjoy showing off these beauties to your friends.
