Monarch Butterfly Silver and Enamel Earrings

Monarch butterflies (Danaus plexippus) are famous for their epic long distance migrations-which can extend for 3,000 miles from the great plains of southern Canada to threatened overwintering sites high in the mountains of central Mexico. Monarchs start life as a cone-shaped egg laid by females on the underside of poisonous milkweed leaves. The egg hatches into a black and yellow striped caterpillar which feeds on milkweed, to which it is immune, before transforming into a satiny green chrysalis and then metamorphosizing into a butterfly. This is a pair of silver and enamel dangle earrings. Master artisans paint each article by hand using solutions containing colored granules of glass. Next, they fire the pieces in a kiln to produce an alluring richness of color. They measure approximately 2.5cm by 1.3cm.
