The butterfly resembles many beautiful things like transition, newness, nature, innocence, life and the balance of fragility and warrior strength. These butterfly earrings are perfect for someone in your life who reminds you of these qualities. They also make a perfect “I love me” gift for yourself!
The dark and turquoise colored patinas on these unique earrings make them look weather worn. I have applied a metal sealer to the front side to help preserve the colors. The nickel free ear wires and other areas of the earrings will naturally patina. They measure 1″ long (plus an additional 0.5″ drop with the ear wire) x 0.5″ wide.
To achieve the design on these earrings, I have used an acid etching technique. Years of experimenting with and fine tuning the process has led to the intricate details you see here.
