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 super cute) 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.
- Earrings are with the colorful hindwing only. If forewing is preferred, just let us know. Also, sometimes we have black form female specimens available.
- Wings have a gorgeous epoxy resin finish on each side.
- Very lightweight.
- For earrings, choose .925 Sterling Silver or hypoallergenic niobium earwires. Niobium is less shiny and contains no nickel. See picture.
- Made for you item. May take a week or so from order to shipping.
