Handmade

Materials

sterling silver, 925

These earrings are a modern twist on the Art Nouveau topic of dragonfly wings. They are made using a wax gun, which is basically a hot glue gun only it shoots out wax instead! Due to the unpredictability of the wax gun, every ring will be slightly different, yet all will be just as beautiful as the next. Cast using the lost wax technique in sterling silver.

The posts and earring backs are hypoallergenic sterling silver 925 and cut and sanded to 9mm which are the perfect length so they won't hurt your ears or neck.

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.

Please read my shop policies on returns and shipping before purchasing.

    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.

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.
