Handmade by Neile Cooper, these are Io Moth wings encased in a very thin lightweight glass and silver alloy and hung on sterling silver lever-backs. The round earring shape enhances the incredible eye of the wing.
Lightweight and 1" wide, 1 1/2" long from the ear including wire.
The butterfly wings the artist uses are from butterflies farmed all over the world, and collected when naturally expired. None are killed for use in this jewelry. Butterfly farming is revitalizing struggling rainforest communities around the world!
