Butterfly earrings by Banshee Silver.

Butterflies were referred to in old and more recent Irish Literature as messengers between this world and the other World, probably as a reference to their transformative life cycle. Author Muiris O'Súilleabháin writes about a dream where a butterfly temporarily transports his friend from this realm ton the otherworld. Lady Speranza Wilde's folklore collection also refers to a butterfly transporting a soul to the otherworld. In this Legend, The Wooing of Étaín, Étaín is transformed by a jealous woman into a beautiful purple butterfly. Later, she falls into a drinking cup and is swallowed and in keeping with the ethereal qualities if a butterfly, she is subsequently reborn over a thousand years later after her first birth.
