Hemiptera insects are one of my favorite kinds. They are a common bug in the Midwest, but these are truly unique. Each earring is created by using a small steel punch and hammer raising the metal to make a 3-dimensional design. These Hemiptera/Stink Bug earrings are fine silver and hang from Argentium wires.

Metal/precious (Fine silver has been used to repoussé the insects body with Argentium silver French wires and backing)

1 x 1 inches
