Things that Remain - Butterfly Wing Earrings
There are pieces left behind when a life moves on. Tattered insect wings. An animal's bone, bleached white in the sun. Bare branches once the leaves have fallen. Flower petals, bits of shell. A broken heart.
These are the things that remain in memory and in loss.
A mismatched pair of butterfly wings, cast in sterling silver from the real thing.
Asymmetrical vintage African trade beads.
Sterling silver earring wires.
Earrings hang 3" from the ear.
The largest wing is about 1 1/4" across at its widest point.
The smaller wing is a little under 1" across at its widest point.
Built by hand.
Made with love.
