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 to learn more.
These wings are from the Papilio Ulysses butterfly and measures approximately 1.75"x2.5" (not including the earring hook). The wings are finished in a thick jeweler's grade resin. The resin finish is considered high quality and is approximately 1/8" thick with a gloss look. 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.
