These earrings depict the insect "Thrips" of the order Thysanoptera. Thrips are tiny insects approximately 1 mm in length. They have slender bodies and feather-like wings that cause them to fly slowly by an unusual "clap and fling" method. They feed on plants by sucking and are a major pest of crop plants and greenhouses.
The earrings are 1.8 cm (0.7 inches) below the loop. Each earring weighs just 3.7 g, making them comfortable to wear.
The earrings are available in solid bronze or sterling silver, finished with nickel-free sterling silver or rose gold plated silver hooks to match, and are ready for gift giving with a gift box, polishing cloth, and care instructions.
