These earrings were made using real Madagascan sunset moth wings - specifically the top set of wings. The people of Madagascar refer to this moth as "Loloandriana", where "lolo" means spirit and "andriana" means noble.

Fun fact: the wings have actually no pigmentation and the colors are actually a result of optical interference! What makes this species so special is that the wings are covered in clear scales that scatter light like a prism - resulting in the colors that we see.

  • Wings were coated in resin to ensure longevity
  • Lightweight and durable
  • Assembled using raw brass findings
  • Hooks are gold-toned and nickel-free
