What We Embrace Earrings
The Monarch Butterfly, the most iconic butterfly in our North American culture, carries stories of metamorphosis, long journeys, and multi-generational return in it’s epic migratory patterns. The graphic patterning of its wings, autumnal orange and black with white spots, are masterfully encased in the glass structure of the triangle by HartVariations. Gentle arcs of metal wire are attached to either side of the triangle, as if in a warm embrace, and curve around the top. The metal work creates negative space that plays against the tawny markings of the wing. These earrings call on us to embrace these iconic symbols, and accept our own stories of transformative journeys, lineage, and home.
The focal portion measures 2" x 1 1/4".
All ear hooks, posts, backs, hoops, and ear threads are sterling silver. The focal portions are constructed with lead-free silver solder, oxidized, and polished.

As this item is hand-made to order, each element (butterfly wing, feather, snakeskin, skull, etc.) is unique in its own way, and may vary slightly in the finished piece. There may also be a difference in size of up to 1/8". The focal-piece is constructed with lead-free silver solder, oxidized, and polished.

JEWELRY CARE: Please handle this one-of-a-kind jewelry with great care, avoid water and remove before applying lotions. Because of the stained glass medium we work in, we are able to use delicate materials from nature that are very heat-sensitive. Too much heat and the wings change color, sometimes losing the vibrant magic that makes them so special. The metal in our work is an alloy of silver and tin, which melts at a lower temperature than sterling. We 100% stand by our work and have sold thousands of pieces in the eight years we've been in business, with a very small number needing repair. The same way you would take care of a silk blouse, please consider the medium in the treatment of your piece and approach with intention and care.
SHIPPING: Please be sure to read the shipping and policies information before your purchase.
