In Thailand, beetle wings of wood–boring beetles Sternocera were preferred to decorate clothing (shawls and Sabai cloth) and jewelry in former court circles. The beetles have a short life span of 3 to 4 weeks in their adult stage. To avoid killing the beetles, only those that die of natural causes are collected.


These wings are the only outsourced material that Bone Boutique purchases. These earrings are 2 1/2 inches long. Available with clip on upon request.
