Glasswing Butterfly Wing Earrings

$84.00

Glasswing butterflies are yet another amazing facet of our natural world. Their wings are often clear, with perhaps minimal color, which allows them to blend in with their environment. The butterfly here is the Pink-tipped Clearwing Satyr (Cithaerias pireta). I have come up with a technique that allows me to add translucence to jewelry. This allows me to pay homage to clearwing butterflies. I carefully add small amounts of color to the wings which are then resined twice for durability. I hand fabricate them out of Sterling wire, and they are light and fun to wear. They measure 1" tall by .75" wide, not including the Sterling earring wires.
