For these very special earrings, I used real butterflywings. I glued them on ultra-suede and stiff stuff. After beading the surrounding in peyote, I filled the holes whith the matching colors from the wings. I finished the earrings with ultra suede on the back and combined the earrings with Swarovski beads 5000 en 5328.
About the Artist: Estrid de Wit
My name is Estrid. I started making jewelry a few years ago and I love it, especially the beadwork bracelets and necklaces. I get my inspiration from the materials I work with, the people around me and lovely pictures that live in my imagination. I love using beautiful material like Swarovski and Miyuki.
I don't have a selling website, but you may always adress directly to me if you want to know the price of one of my items.
You can find me at Artconventions. Lately at the National Art days in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. You may only take part of this event after nomination from a jury.
