Description

*Order by Dec 16th to receive by Dec 25th.*

Elytra:
the pair of hardened forewings of certain insects, as beetles, forming a protective covering for the posterior or flight wings.

These wing coverings are not painted in any way. The gorgeous color is completely natural of the magnificent Jewel beetles. These beetles have a life span of only a few days and at the end of this life they shed their elytra, providing me with these wonderful burst of color for my jewelry.

These earrings are a great statement piece and can be worn with all kinds of outfits. Spice up any day with these vibrant earrings. They are light and easy to wear. The wings even make a lovely sound when they move!

The chain is either gold plated or sterling silver(depending on availability) and the ear hooks are gold filled, which means the plating will not come off and are hypoallergenic.

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 before purchase.

FAQs

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.
