GOLDEN FAIRY are made with the naturally beautiful Elytra (wings) of the Green Jewel beetle (Sternocera aequisignata.) These earrings features the rare copper mutation of the Jewel beetle. The elytra shift in color from copper to gold to green. The surface of the elytra are shiny and iridescent, giving the effect of sunlight on oil-slick. Beetle wings have been used for centuries by Indian civilizations, cut into tiny spangle shapes to adorn a range of objects from garments and turban cloths, to canopies and book covers, their reflective properties admired as a means to ward off evil spirits.

The iridescent copper of the elytra are complimented with gorgeous iridescent faceted crystal beads, oxidized black brass findings and open filigree hoops.

The wings make a wonderful tinkling sound when worn...like the sound of the faeries!

BEETLE- "As with many insects the beetle goes through a tremendous metamorphosis from the grub stage to the winged. Because of this, it is associated with resurrection and change. In its winged stage, the front set of wings are thickened into hard covers which fold and protect the soft underside. This may indicate for those with this totem a need to be more protective, or possibly that you are too closed off." ~~Ted Andrews

Earrings measure 4.5 inches long.
