Where does inspiration come from, it comes on glass wings in the night, flapping and fluttering toward the light.
Well, there's not much of a story behind this design. I listened to a podcast about cicadas and then researched cicadas online and decided to saw out a sterling cicada wing. A couple days later I woke up to LITERALLY hundreds of thousands of moths covering my house. It was an Old Testament plague of moths...nightmarish. Then I rode one of my horses in the high country and we were fluttered all over by swallowtails. It was beautiful. So I found myself really into bug wings for a bit. This little series is the result.
These earrings feature butterfly wings paired with earthy cuts of Kingman Turquoise -- magical with movement.
Length: About 3 inches with my hand formed and forged French ear wires.
