*Note: I have one pair of the medium earrings, which are a bit over 1.25 inches (3.2 cm) long and .75 inches (2 cm) wide. If you want the large size I will make them for you - that will take me 2 extra days."

I took my original photograph of a monarch butterfly and created this design of the side view of its wing. I printed the image on lutradur which I had coated with Golden Paint's Digital Ground. The front and back of the earrings are the same. The large earrings are 1.5 inches (4.5 cm) long and 1.25 inches (3 cm) wide. The medium earrings are a bit over 1.25 inches (3.2 cm) long and .75 inches (2 cm) wide. The final photograph, with the ruler included, shows one example of each earring, so you can compare the sizes. If you have a preference for size, please let me know by convo or email when you order, or I will choose one or the other for you.

Please note that I make these to order, and they may take up to a week to be finished. Because they are handmade there will be slight variations from the earrings pictured. When you order, please let me know by convo or email whether you need hypo-allergenic earwires. On these earrings I generally prefer to use black jumprings and earwires, but if you email or convo me, I can use either gold-colored or antique brass-colored. If you have a preference please let me know by convo or email when you order, or I will choose one or the other for you.

Lutradur is an art material made of spun bonded polyester, with a very pleasing texture that you can feel and see even when it is printed. Since Lutradur is very light, the earrings feel much like real butterfly wings. If you're interested in learning more about lutradur, I have written several posts on my blog: http://gardendelightsarts.wordpress.com/

This monarch butterfly was one that we raised. We found the egg on milkweed that we planted in our garden to attract the monarchs, and brought the monarch inside, feeding and protecting it until it emerged as a butterfly, at which time we released it.
