Sidhe Wings Earrings - Banshee - Iridescent Faery Wings Earrings

As we came down the old boreen,
Rose and I – Rose and I,
At vesper time on Sunday e’en,
We heard a banshee cry!
Beyond the churchyard dim and dark,
‘Neath whispering elms, and yew-trees stark,
Where our star shone-a corpse-like spark-
Against the wintry sky.

We heard and shuddered sick with dread,
Rose and I- Rose and I,
As the shrill keening rang o’erhead
Where cloud-wrack floated high.
Our two young hearts long, sorely tried,
By poverty and love denied
Still waiting for some favouring tide,
And now! Death come so nigh.

- The Banshee, Alice Guerin Crist

I am so pleased to present to the newest incarnation in my Faery Wing line- ultra iridescent wings adorned with Swarovski crystal.

In Irish mythology, the Aes Sídhe, also called the Aos Sí ("People of the Mounds"), are noble fae. They are the legacy of the Tuatha De Danaan, and they dwell in the Sidhe. These wings are named for the Bean-sidhe, more popularly known as the Banshee- the fairy woman who keens as a death omen. Closely associated with the Scottish bean-nighe, the washerwoman, she may appear as a frightening hag washing bloodstains from clothes. Others have reported sighting Banshees who appeared to them as beautiful women.

These wings are transparent but full of color- an unearthly green, shot through with gold and pink, ever changing.

I have photographed the wings in both natural light and light from my light box to give you a sense of their iridescence- and yet I can still say that they are more beautiful in person!

I have hand-formed and hammered these delicate wings from sterling silver filled wires, then encased them in a durable layer of resin. This resin is non-toxic, completely waterproof, and will not yellow with time.

These earrings measure 2 3/4" tall from the tops of their sterling silver earwires.
