Real butterfly wings are used after their natural passing and turned into wearable art. Nothing is done to harm the butterfly. They come from preservation farms worldwide and information cards are included with each order.
These wings are from the day flying Sunset Moth from Madagascar 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). The wings are approximately 1/8" thick with a glossy look. These beautiful earrings are lightweight, durable and waterproof. Earring backs are included.
Due to working with natural supplies each product may slightly vary from that pictured.
