Chrysalis

Earrings with yellow gold casts of the chrysalis of a peacock butterfly (Aglais io) acquired using a 3D scanner that allowed the butterfly to emerge unscathed from this procedure. The already recognizable outline of wings, head and antennae are accentuated with strokes of black enamel. The chrysalides hang from a diamond-set white gold cast of a vine tendril.
