This set of earrings features a pair of gorgeous metallic red flower beetles. (Heterorrhina leonardi "red form" from Thailand)
You'll find them especially beautiful when you wear them out in the sun; their color reflects the light in an amazing way. They have a prismatic coloration that reflects light from within the shell, which results in different colors in different lighting situations. They show a bit of olive green in the right light, as well as flame red. Very impressive in person!

Silver filigree "snowflakes" are attached to sterling silver ear wires. Silver snowflakes are rhodium-plated and measure one inch in diameter. Since the beetles are not altered in any way by me, there is a slight organic variation between each beetle. However, they are nearly identical.

Comes in a gift box; the last photo shows an example of my packaging.



These beetles are surpringly durable. They are made to live outside, and are thus fairly water and scratch-proof. I have been testing their durability for over a year now with great results. Worn normally as earrings, I cannot forsee these insects sustaining any serious damage. The wings have been glued shut, and other precautions have been taken to ensure the best possible durability. Please do treat this as fine jewelry, though, and store them in a safe, dry place out of direct sunlight. Jewelry boxes work perfectly for this. If any part of your beetles should become damaged within one year, please return to me for fixing or replacement.

Beetles have been worn as bodily decoration for thousands of years by native Central and South Americans. Here's your chance to carry on that unique and beautiful tradition in the 21st century!
