Real butterfly wings are used after their natural passing and turned into wearable art. Nothing is done to harm the butterfly. They are acquired from butterfly preservation farms worldwide and information cards will be included with each purchase.
These wings are from the Graphium Weiskei butterfly and can be purchased in a laminate finish (similar to the thickness of card stock paper) or a resin finish (coated in jeweler's grade resin). The wings measure approximately 1"x 1" (not including the earring hook).
Since the earrings are made from real butterfly wings each product may slightly vary from what is pictured. Finished wings are attached to hypoallergenic surgical steel earring hooks. Earring backs are included.
