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 Papilio Bromius 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 laminate finish measure approximately 1"x 1" (not including the earring hook). The resin finish measure approximately 1.25"x1.75" (not including the earring hook). These finishes make these earrings durable, lightweight, and waterproof. Earring backs are included.
Due to working with natural supplies each product may slightly vary from that pictured. Finished wings are attached to hypoallergenic surgical steel earring hooks. Earring backs are included.
