Blue Leafwing Hindwings
Fun fact! They are called Leafwings because the underside looks like a dead leaf.
As the blue is caused by iridescence, it will appear much brighter in bright light. I tried to show the variation in color in the pictures.
All creations come from nature, and will vary in color and pattern. Since they lived natural lives, they may also have small imperfections.
All earrings are 925 silver unless special ordered.
Butterflies have relatively short lifespans, with most only living a few weeks. Therefore, butterfly farms have a constant supply.
Sources of my specimens include: entomology supply companies, butterfly farms, entomologist collections, donated pets & locally found dead. No creatures are harmed for the creation of my art! Everything I use has already passed, and I'm giving it a new life by recycling it.
