I hand needle tatted these earrings by dissecting the vintage pattern I used in my Tenebrous pendants. I added carefully chosen beetle elytra to the ends and a small swarovski black diamond crystal in the center of each one.

The pendant hangs nearly 3"(7.62cm) from a silver plated ear wires.

As beetle wings are creations of nature each piece will vary a bit.

Elytra are the wing cases from large jeweled beetles and they shine with amazing greens, blues and purples. Elytra have been used in jewelry and textiles for centuries. They are surprisingly strong, but care should still be taken when storing the pieces as they most certainly can break.

The matching necklace is available here: http://www.etsy.com/listing/45751176/tenebrous-elytra-beetle-wing-tatted
