Rainbow Elytra Jewel Beetle Wing Earrings


These earrings are the perfect gift!

My new obsession - Elytra Beetle wing earrings! They are also known as jewel beetles. Most of its wings are emerald green, but some rarer ones vary in colors in all the colors of the iridescent rainbow! I love how each wing changes color according to the angle and how the light hits it!

🍃 All of the colors that you see are natural as nature intended them to be!
🍃 There is a resin treatment on the underside to strengthen the wings and make them more resistant to breakage.
🍃 Each iridescent wing was carefully matched, chosen and placed so that when combined, the colors of the rainbow will be highlighted.

🍃Mini: 3 levels (6 wings) 3 inches from the top to the tip (note that the wings are only green/iridescent blue - Red/orange/ yellow wing earrings available on request, but will have a cost of $ 10 more due to the rarity of the color wing)
🍃 Short: 5 levels (10 wings) 3.5-4 inches from top to tip
🍃 Medium: 8 steps (16 wings) 4.5-5 inches from top to top
🍃 Length: 10 levels (20 wings) 5.5 -6 inches from top to tip
🍃 Mounted on mat board with original abstract acrylic paint signed by me.

Note: the longer the earrings, the greater the variation of color that you will see. Red/orange, orange/yellow, yellow / lime green, aqua / blue, and blue/purple wings are much rarer and more expensive than iridescent green wings, so prices vary only with a few more wings in each size. Most jewel beetles are iridescent green. For each dark red wing, there are 100 greens.

🍃 Handmade with Aloha in Hawaii

These wings come from the gorgeous leaf-eating Thai Jewel beetles, where they live out their natural lives for about 5 years from larvae to beetle. Once they lay their eggs and complete their lifespan cycle, they are then collected and used as a local food source from a Thai family that sells them in their village to provide nourishment to their residents. The wings are a natural bi-product of this food source that are then harvested, sorted, cleaned and treated with a light resin coat to harden the wings so that they can be turned into beautiful creations like you see here.

  • Frequently Asked Questions

    Feather Mohawks - How secure is the clip?

    I provide hair ties and step by step instructions along with a video on how to wear your mohawk. Once it's on - it's ON! In fact, they were designed to be able to withstand dust storms at Burning man! It is a piece that can literally be worn all day - I even slept in mine once. If you follow the instructions on how to wear it and really secure it in place(super tight hair ties, extra hair gel!!!), you should not have any problems with it falling off. I also can add an adjustable strap if you have little to no hair or would like the option at your request.

    Feather Mohawks: My hair is short, bald or I have a very sensitive scalp so I prefer a strap as opposed to a clip.

    If there is no drop down option in the listing, just let me know in notes during checkout and I will add an adjustable strap to your mohawk.

    Feather Mohawks and Headdresses: Just how custom can you make my piece?

    If you can think it up, I can make it! Contact me to discuss if you do not see what you are looking for. I love to take on new projects. More examples of my work can be found at www.facebook.com/artfromtheheART or feel free to add me at facebook.com/artisticalshell and take a look through my albums or tagged photos of people proudly the pieces I have made for them!

    Can I see it before you ship it?

    Yes! At your request, I will email you a photo of the exact one you will be getting before I send it out so that I get your seal of approval! I can also Skype, Facetime or send you a video at your request.

    How many changes can I make after you show me a photo of my piece?

    I don't place a limit on perfection. I will make as many changes as necessary until you are happy with it! Extra charges may apply if you request something that is going to take a lot longer to create or if it has to be special ordered.

    How much will my feather mohawk or headdress weigh?

    They're actually quite light - as feathers!

    +Smaller feather mohawks are about 2.5-4 ounces
    +Larger Mohawks are about 6-9 ounces.
    +Headdresses can be anywhere between 6-1.5 pounds depending on what materials are used. 95% of the time they are always under a pound.

    Please allow about 1-4 weeks for me to get it made for you and shipped out so you can rock this baby out on the town, party, rave, festival, carnival, mardi gras, photoshoot, concert, New Years Eve, Halloween - anywhere you want to WOW people and turn heads, this is what you need!!!

    NOTE: If you need it by a specific day sooner than the 2-4 week waiting period, please let me know so we can work something out. 95% of the time I can make it within the time period that you need, as soon as a next day turnaround!
