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 to learn more.
These wings are from the Delias Hyparete butterfly and measures approximately 1"x1" (not including the earring hook). The wings can be finished in a thick lamination (similar to the thickness of card stock paper) or in jeweler's grade resin. The resin finish is considered higher quality and is approximately 1/8" thick with a glossier look. Both options are durable, lightweight, and waterproof. Due to working with natural supplies each product may slightly vary than what is pictured. Finished wings are attached to hypoallergenic surgical steel earring hooks and two earring backs are included. Other earring hook options are available upon request.
Please note that choosing the resin option will delay shipping. Resin takes 3-5 days to fully cure. Message me if you have any questions.
Jewelry is shipped in a USPS padded envelope and takes 3 to 5 days to reach anywhere in the continental U.S. or 7 to 10 days for any international destination. These always make a good gift for friends!
