Nature is incredible. In Thailand, there is a vivid green beetle called Elytra that folks there eat as an excellent source of protein. It's wings are resplendent, quite durable and non-edible, and so they are left behind. Drill a hole in them and you've got earrings that are plucked from the very apex of Mother Nature's brilliance.
These Thai Elytra wings are completely un-touched, un-coated, un-enhanced in any way except for being drilled. They are feather-light. As each wing is unique, pairs may differ only marginally from the photo in terms of which undertone may shine through more prominently, the cool or the warm.
Stainless hooks. Approx. 2"+ hanging length
elytra wing earrings
Cannot be considered "vegan," but they are akin to making earrings from feathers or bone. Just a tad more interesting.
Store mindfully where the earrings will not be jostled or chipped by other jewelry. Elytra wings are quite durable, but not indestructible.
