Butterfly Stud Earrings, Fine Silver, Textured with Ticklegrass from the Prairie
I have created these butterfly stud earrings in fine silver and shaped them so they look like they are ready to fly. I used wispy sprigs of ticklegrass from the prairie to texture the wings and then patinaed them to bring out the texture of the grass.
Butterflies are soldered to sterling silver posts and include secure clutches to keep them from flying away. Each butterfly is approximately 1/2" x 1/2".
