Let this little butt glowing beetle light up your night and day! Wait, did I say beetle? Yep, fireflies are neither flies nor bugs, but beetles!

These gorgeous GLOW-IN-THE-DARK hoop earrings are quirky, cute, and did I mention that they GLOW-IN-THE-DARK?!?!?! That's right, a lovely glowy acrylic imitates the pretty fireflies lantern (the name of the organ that produces light!). Tucked beneath etched iridescent wings, this design captures the beauty and magic of these lovely firebugs. Plus each firefly sports a unique rainbow coloured shell - meaning every pair is absolutely unique.


Kinetic jewellery is all about motion. Let the love-bug earrings do the shimmy for you and attract all the nice people in the world. Don't miss the product video in the gallery to see the fireflies’ dance moves!

These fun insect earrings also make a great gift for nature lovers and bug enthusiasts.

Quirky and cute, these light-as-a-beetle fireflies hang on simple gold colour or sterling silver hoops and are handmade in Australia. Believe it or not, not many people realise that Australia has fireflies - you an usually only find them in our most inaccessible forests and mangroves. But they're there....and on your ears if you decide to pick up a pair!

Story behind the design

There's something absolutely magical about fireflies...or should I say beetles (hint: we should. Because that's what they are!)

But why do they glow? All sorts of reasons - but mostly, they glow for....love.  For these love-bugs, it really does start with a spark. Males fly around forests and open meadows in the night, flashing to attract a mate. A female charmed by a male’s display will glow in his direction, guiding his way to her on the ground. But it's all about the rhythm baby: for some species, faster or longer flash patterns are most appealing to their lovely lady, while for others, slow or short flashes get the girl.

But it's not just the adult fire flies that get their glow on. 

Their eggs glow too? That's right! The life cycle of a firefly only spans about two years - but they only spend about three weeks of their life as a fire 'fly'. The rest of that time they're either a cute munchy caterpillar, scaring off predators (the light acts as a chemical and visual defence, warning predators that they are toxic to taste) or as little glowy eggs. How cool is that?

Are there fireflies in Australia? Not a lot of people are aware the country has fireflies, let alone two dozen different species, because they’re not in places commonly seen by the public. They only live in areas where there’s moist undergrowth. And most of those areas – dense scrubland, rainforests, mangroves and national parks – tend to be inaccessible by the everyday person. Mostly, you’ll find them in Australia’s top end and down the east coastline. Occasionally, you’ll be lucky to spot a couple in a suburban backyard in Brisbane’s outer pockets.
