Individually handcrafted in California from real butterflies (Blue Morpho Portis) raised on farms in Peru dedicated to conservation. After they have lived their full life cycle, the artist memorializes their wings in a clear crystal resin designed to preserve their beauty for a lifetime. Earrings are made so that they can be reversed to feature the natural camouflage on the other side of the wing. Earrings hang 2 ¼ from sterling silver earwires. Please note size and color may vary slightly due to the use of natural materials. Each package includes a card with instructions on how to reverse the earring, as well as this short story.
