  These brightly colored butterfly wings are really quite charming. Each spectacular wing is a vivid yellow that is speckled with subtle hints of light brown. This splendid species name is Phoebis Argante though it is generally referred to as a "Sulphur". It is a member of the Pieridae family which can be found throughout North and South America. With a delicate touch I have 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. Curiously 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. It is my hope that these wings will be a simple peaceful presence that might help to brighten your day.
