Real butterfly wings are used after their natural passing to create this wearable art. Nothing is done to harm the butterfly. The wings are acquired from butterfly preservation farms and information cards will be included with each order.
These wings are from the Cithaerias Merolina butterfly and dangle 1.75" from the ear. The wings are finished in a thick lamination (similar to the thickness of card stock paper). The earrings are durable, lightweight, and waterproof. Real abalone shell dangles below the laminated wings.
Finished wings are attached to hypoallergenic surgical steel earring hooks and two earring backs are included.
Due to working with natural supplies each product may slightly vary from that pictured.
