Oh, how I love the subtle details of these delightful butterfly wings. They offer a rich translucent amber that features a deep brown lacy pattern running throughout. This lovely species name is Vindula Erota but it is far better known as a "The Cruiser". It is a member of the nymphalidae family that is native to South and East Asia. 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. Remarkably 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. These earrings are quite simply a pair of earth-toned beauties that you will enjoy examining their finer details.
