Let folks know how much you enjoy nature with these real butterfly wing earrings. With their earthy browns, strong blacks and mellow amber overtones you will enjoy studying these wings finer details. This species name is Smyrna Bloomfeldia and can be found from southern Texas all the way down into South America. With a gentle touch 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. Surprisingly light weight and easy to wear, each of the wings measure approximately 1 5/8 inches in length and are suspended by hypo-allergenic earwire. You will be sure to amaze your friends when you tell them they are real.
