I found a stunning bright red butterfly wing just laying on the ground by my front door. So I immortalized it in metal!
These little beauties will add a delicate and whimsical natural element to your wardrobe! Wonderful statement to add to your ear stack and light enough to wear all day!
Butterfly wing measures approximately 1"L x 5/8"W
Total earring length is approximately 1-1/2"L
Sterling silver option is .925 sterling silver wing and handmade French style ear wires. The wing has an oxidized (darkened) patina finish.
Bronze option is a bronze wing hanging on a 14K gold-filled handmade French style ear wires. Bronze wing has a satin/matte kiln patina finish which is left natural and will patina over time.
Each wing is made by hand by pressing metal clay into a mold, hand cutting, drying and sanding. The piece is then kiln fired and finished to this beautiful and unique piece of solid metal jewelry. As with any handmade item, variations are to be expected and enjoyed!
*14K gold-filled is an actual layer of 14 carat gold - pressure bonded onto a base metal. It is not gold-plate - it has more gold than gold-plating, will not flake off and is far more valuable and tarnish resistant.
*Bronze is composed of 90% copper and 10% tin and is nickel free.
