The extremely translucent nature of these butterfly earrings makes them really quite versatile. They offer a fascinating pattern in rich browns that give it nice detail, but it is the transparent sea foam areas that are most compelling. They simply let any color that happens to be behind them show through. This interesting species name is Polyura Narcaea and it is a member of the Nymphalidae family that can be natively found in Taiwan. I have artistically 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. Extremely light weight and easy to wear, each of these wings measure approximately 1 5/8 inches in length and are suspended by hypo-allergenic earwire. Intriguingly versatile, the simple flexibility of these earrings will add a natural beauty to nearly any wardrobe.
