Sidhe Wings Earrings - Leanan Sidhe - Iridescent Faery Wings Earrings

I met a lady in the meads,
Full beautiful — a faery's child,
Her hair was long, her foot was light,
And her eyes were wild.

-- La Belle Dame Sans Merci, John Keats


"Most of the Gaelic poets, down to quite recent times, have had a Leanhaun Shee, for she gives inspiration to her slaves and is indeed the Gaelic muse -- this malignant fairy. Her lovers, the Gaelic poets, died young. She grew restless and carried them away to other worlds, for death does not destroy her power."

--W.B. Yeats, Fairy and Folk Tales of Ireland.


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 after for Leanan Sídhe, the fairy lover, the Muse. But beware the Leanan Sídhe-- for her love comes at the price of madness.

These wings are transparent but full of color, shifting between all the shades of twilight-- lilac purple, luminous blue, firefly green, 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 copper and bronze 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 copper earwires.
