These real butterfly wing earrings feature two Blue Morpho butterfly wings that have a sophisticated blue colour palette. They have been encased in resin to create these beautiful earrings. Pendant measures is approximately 6.5 cm long and 5.5 cm wide.
Please note that because the butterfly wing did once belong to a living butterfly, there may be slight markings or small tears. These should not be considered flaws as they are natural and proof that the wing once belonged to a flying butterfly. In saying that, I do carefully select the wings I use and make sure they are aesthetically pleasing.
I encase each wing in resin, because I do this by hand small bubbles can sometimes occur. Rather than looking at this as a fault, consider it part of the handmade charm.
Pendant hangs on your choice of an 18" or 24" stainless steel chain.
