Butterfly Wings Earrings, Black White Polymer Clay Handmade Jewelry

Item Description

The ZEBRA SWALLOWTAIL nature inspired handmade earrings are so very reminiscent of the wings of a butterfly when first emerging from its chrysalis after its magical transformation from a caterpillar to a butterfly.  Folded and crumpled and sometimes different sizes, these unique earrings capture that transformative moment forever. The one of a kind earrings feature lightweight, polymer clay butterfly wing dangles, Swarovski crystals and Tibetan agate.  The beautifully patterned butterfly wings were artisan created from polymer clay in black, white and pink, inspired by an actual zebra swallowtail (minus the tail). The wings are two sided, folded, and one is just a bit bigger than the other by only about 2 mm.  Because these lightweight beauties are two-sided, they look fabulous and intriguing from any angle.
To perfectly complement the butterfly wings, sparkling Swarovski crystal bicones in a color called “jet” black were used.  A single small sterling silver bead separates it from a black and ivory Tibetan agate gemstone bead. The Tibetak agate is also faceted to add even more subtle glitter to the overall design.  Wire wrapped with sterling wire, the unique earrings are finished with sterling French hook earwires. Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the ZEBRA SWALLOWTAIL butterfly wing earrings were created for the woman who loves the beauty of butterflies and adores wearing lightweight artisan jewelry.

Butterflies are believed to be the embodiment of spiritual growth because of their magical transformation from a caterpillar to a butterfly.  Even though man made, glass carries the energies of transformation, rebirth and communication. Tibetan Agate is known for healing the mind, body and spirit.  Silver is a metal of love and healing; it is a mirror to the soul, helping us to see ourselves as others see us.


The ZEBRA SWALLOWTAIL artisan butterfly wing earrings were carefully designed and handmade in a dog friendly, smoke free studio. They will be carefully packed in an organza jewelry bag with tissue, perfect for gift giving to a loved one . . . or to yourself!
