Copper Jewel Beetle Chandelier Earrings
Made with 925 Sterling Silver hooks and chainmail ring and are hypoallergenic.
The 'tassles' are natural, ethically sourced Jewel Beetle wings from Thailand. Once the Beetles lay their eggs, they die off and are then collected and processed.
The colors shifts dramatically as the light plays across their iridescent surface ranging from copper to lime green and gold.
The piece is approx 2.75" from top to bottom.

All bones, skulls, and insects are ethically and sustainably sourced. Meaning that these animals are not hunted and killed for the sole purpose of selling. I source from taxidermists, finding things in nature that are already dead and from Native American reservations where all parts of the animal are used and where population controlled hunts are permitted. EVERYTHING that I use is already dead. I'm using their bones to honor the beauty in life as well as in death.
Do not submerge in water, to clean use microfiber cloth on shells and silver. jewelry cleaner on backings.
