Simply darling, these precious little butterfly wing earrings will be sure to make folks smile. Each of these darling semi-translucent wings are a vivid yellow with only a slight touch of black to distinguish the edges. This lovely species name is Phoebis Trite though it commonly referred to as a "Sulphur" and it is a member of the Pieridae family that can be found natively throughout North and South America. 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. Very light weight and easy to wear, each of these wings measure approximately 1 1/4 inches in length and are suspended by hypo-allergenic earwire. These butterfly wings, with their brilliant yellow, will surely add a splash of sunshine to your day.
