Yes, these are made from real butterfly wings! The wings are gently dipped in resin to preserve them and make them durable enough to create earrings. The iridescence and color are absolutely amazing!
These earrings were a night market find from Chiang Mai, Thailand. I wish I could give you a feel for the market there. It’s one of my favorite places to shop. The air is warm and humid, but pleasant after the extreme heat of the day. The streets are full of tourists and locals as everyone moves through crowded streets with stalls selling jewelry, purses, shoes, fruit, meat on a stick, mango sticky rice, carved wooden animals, asian lanterns, clothes, and a thousand other things. It’s a fascinating way to spend an evening.
