Eastern Tiger Swallowtail Resin Earrings -- Papilio glaucus

A common butterfly across eastern North America, this swallowtail comes in yellow and also a dark female form.  These are made out of wings from the yellow form female, with beautiful coloration and a lot more stunning than the comparatively drab (but still pretty) males.

Eastern tigers have several broods during the spring/summer, with the final brood overwintering as pupae.  A variety of larvae hostplants are used, including lilac, cherry, and tulip tree.

Item Details:

  • Two real Eastern Tiger Swallowtail hindwings, from one specimen for symmetry.
  • Wings have a gorgeous epoxy resin finish on each side.
  • Very lightweight.
  • Choice of .925 sterling silver ear wires, or hypoallergenic Niobium ear wires.  (Niobium are less shiny, but contain no nickel.  See picture)
