Elegant Elytra Whirligig Earrings.
Elytra, or wings from the Asian “green jewel” beetle (Sternocera aequistignata) have been used to embellish textiles in Asia for centuries. Here, six elytra dangle together in an elegant whirligig at the end of a brass chain. The earrings themselves are also brass and close by hinges so you never have to worry about losing these light and lovely jewels. The earrings in the photo are my personal earrings, but I will make a set just like them for you. if you'd rather the chain be longer or shorter, just let me know when you order them.
