These real butterfly wing earrings feature two Queen Flasher butterfly wings that have a sophisticated blue colour palette. They have been encased in resin to create these beautiful earrings. Pendant measures is approximately 1.5-2" long.
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.
***Queen Red Flasher***
