Our charmingly detailed silver fly earrings started out as a whimsical Victorian collar button; we molded the little fellow and cast him in solid sterling silver with sterling shepard's hook earwires. Flies in particular had symbolic significance in the 19th century and were used sometimes as representations of human mortality and by extension spiritual humility. They can also represent the idea of secrets, or secret keeping; just like the fly on the wall sees everything but tells no one. ... Well, to be fair flies can't talk, but we're concerned with poetic metaphor here. Contrary to my impression of most flies I also think there's something sweet about these little bugs, a sort of wholesome friendliness. They're not trying to get in your way, they're just trying to get by. This particular fly itself measures 5/8" long and 9/16" wide and hangs from a sturdy sterling silver ear-wire for a total length of about 7/8" from top of ear-wire curve to bottom of the bug. Comes with a discreet clear plastic back to hold him firmly in place. No buzzing off at inopportune moments.
