the pair of hardened forewings of certain insects, as beetles, forming a protective covering for the posterior or flight wings.
These wing coverings are not painted in any way. The gorgeous color is completely natural of the magnificent Jewel beetles. These beetles have a life span of only a few days and at the end of this life they shed their elytra, providing me with these wonderful burst of color for my jewelry.
This necklace is a great statement piece and can be worn with all kinds of outfits. Spice up any day with this vibrant necklace. They are light and easy to wear. The wings even make a lovely sound when they move!
The wings are sewn onto the burgundy lambskin and is backed with more lambskin so it is very comfortable to wear. The chain and clasp are gold plated.
