Orange Heliconia Butterfly Earrings
Vivid and colourful butterfly wing earrings, made in anodised aluminium.
A gorgeously patterned orange and black Peruvian Heliconia Hecale butterfly. The underlying brushed aluminium glints, the curved body catching the sun from most angles. Other butterflies are available!
The earrings are 2.8cm in length, fitted onto sterling silver ear wire droppers. Very light at only 1.0 grams, making them comfortable to wear.
The colour goes into the pores of the alumininium and anodised to fix and hold it inside the surface. I have tested the durability of the finish to ensure that it is scratch resistant, water resistant to an overnight soak, and survives several minutes of bleach.
