potatochip, chip, bronze, sterling, silver, 925

Consumption: The act or process of consuming.

I have an overwhelming interest in all things considered taboo, especially those dealing with the society I live in.
We are submerged in the idea of consuming everything around us.
These potato chip earrings describe a culture that "can't have just one."

Made of bronze, I individually cast each potato chip (Yes they were real! I use Ruffles). No two chips are a like and therefore all of the earrings will be different. The pair of chip earrings in each set will also differ slightly. The ear wires and half jump ring are sterling silver .925 and fully soldered.
These are a great addition to your jewelry collection if you're a health nut, potato chip lover, or nonconformist like me. Although if you're none of these, please don't hesitate!

You can choose between 3cm, 4cm or 5cm length of chip. The 3cm and 5cm are pictured.

Earrings are packaged in a white padded box, wrapped with a bow, and either shipped in a white padded envelope or box depending on country of shipment.

Beetle wings are fragile. They will withstand normal wear though.
For necklaces that have sewn beetle wings on, the wings are all backed with resin. Be careful not to get leather pieces wet.
For metal jewelry, tarnish can be removed with store bought tarnish remover.
I do have gift wrapping available for free. Please message me if you would like to include it with your order. If you are shipping a gift to a friend please let me know in the comments what type of message to include with the gift.
Yes! They are taxidermy forewings of the Jewel beetle native to Thailand.
I did not personally kill a single beetle in the making of your jewelry! Jewel beetles only have a four day lifespan and once they die they shed their wings. They are harvested in Thailand.

    Catie has always made stunning pieces for me, including a pair of her famous beetlewing earrings, which always earn me compliments, and my wedding ring. But she outdid herself this time when she created three necklaces as a memorial for my sister in law, whose daughter passed away at 34 weeks gestation.

    The butterflies and angel wing will be worn by my sister in law, her husband, and her older daughter. They represent such a sweet and hopeful remembrance, keeping their sweet little girl close to their hearts even though she cannot be in their arms.

    The piece us really beautiful. The chains between the pieces are a little long so it makes them hard to wear across the forehead as shown in the picture, so that is a little disappointing. I may try to shorten those chains myself to fit my head.
