mint_ swallowtail_earrings

09 October 2020

Hand-made, unique earrings made out of upper parts of real butterfly wings from the Papilio phorcas (Africa). The wings are covered in high quality epoxy resin which makes them light, durable and waterproof accessory. 

 

They have vivid and contrasting colors. The earwire is made out of surgical steel, and the outstandijg bead out of platynium, anti-allergenic metal. 

 

The whole length of each earrring is 7,5 cm. 

 

During the creation of this design, no insect has been harmed. All of the insects used in my works have lived out their natural life span. The butterflies are being raised on special farms, which work according to the rules of sustainable development. Buying butterflies and other insects from such farms, helps protect the natural environment of thousands of species.
