Elytra is the entomological name for beetle wings, which inspired this collection. Multiple elytra, made from dyed, anodised aluminium, are clustered together to form overlapping patterns that remind us of fish scales, flower petals and bird feathers. Earrings can be suspended upside down, causing the elytra to flare outwards, like an open pinecone.
