This listing is for one pair of skull moth inspired laser engraved and cut lightweight wood earrings, hand-painted off white and bronze sparkle details, with brass hooks for dangle design.

Size: 2.5 inches wide at bottom, and 1.5 inches tall. With the brass hardware and chain, they hang about 3 inches down.

Meet Acherontia atropos, otherwise known as the death's-head hawkmoth.
It gets its name from the sinister-looking skull shape on its back. In many cultures it is thought to be an omen of death.

A death's-head hawkmoth will squeak when a hungry predator approaches. Despite their fearsome reputation, this noise is about the only defense the moth has.

They are commonly observed raiding beehives of different species of honey bee for honey. They can move about in hives without being disturbed because they mimic the scent of the bees.

They are mostly active in the evening, from dusk until midnight. The Death’s Head Moth originates in Africa, but it is common in Europe because of its migration patterns.

Perfect for Halloween or anyone who loves witchy jewelry!

I'm inspired by spiritual imagery and historical references to the mysteries of the afterlife. I hope you enjoy these earrings as much as I did making them!

Hand-painted details and wood vary, but I will do my best to match in the picture. Brass hardware is nickel free.
