Acherontia Atropos (n) - the Death's-Head Hawkmoth is most commonly identified by the skull-shaped pattern adorning the thorax
Adopt your very own pair of Death's-Head Hawkmoth specimens! These earrings are inspired by taxidermy butterfly collections and old 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 moths make a delicate addition to any outfit and are light enough to be worn all day long.
Each moth has been hand painted in watercolour by London-based designer Maddie Chambers 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.
Moth Charm Measures: 15mm Deep x 35mm Wide
Drop Length: 35mm
Please note that all earrings are non-returnable due to hygiene reasons.
