The eye catching color of these butterfly wing earrings is really quite captivating. Its predominately bright orange surface features faint black veins that give them subtle detail. This gentle species name is Appias Nero but it is better known as the "Orange Albatross". It is a member of the Pieridae family which can naturally be found primarily in Indonesia. With a soft touch 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. Wonderfully light weight and easy to wear, each of the wings measure approximately 1 1/2 inches in length and are suspended by hypo-allergenic earwire. Quite honestly, these real butterfly earrings are truly a pair of natural beauties to behold.
