Gastrophysa Viridula (n) - the green sorrel beetle, or green dock leaf beetle is a species of beetle native to Europe and are named after the species they feed on.
Adopt your very own pair of Beetle specimens! These earrings are inspired by antique taxidermy collections and Natural History Illustrations, but are one hundred percent sustainable and cruelty free. They are mounted on a replica library card that fell out of a Victorian encyclopaedia of animals while I was researching specimens.
The Cherry Wood that our designs are printed on is responsibly sourced and makes a great, lightweight material for earrings. These little beetles make a delicate addition to any outfit and are light enough to be worn all day long.
Each beetle has been hand painted in watercolour before being digitally printed in the UK onto responsibly sourced laser cut Cherry Wood. The earrings are hand-assembled by Maddie in her London studio using Sterling Silver findings and attached to a backing card.
Beetle Charm Measures: 30mm Deep x 25mm Wide
Drop Length: 50mm
Please note that all earrings are non-returnable due to hygiene reasons.
