New Latin from Ancient Greek πτερα (ptera), plural of πτερόν (pteron, “wing”).
Usually used as a taxonomic epithet, ptera is used to form systematic names of winged animals. Some of our favorite little winged insects are:
Coleoptera (beetles, including ladybugs), Lepidoptera (butterflies and moths), and Hymenoptera (large order of insects that include bees and wasps).
Formed from the bond between a mother and her daughter, Ptera aims to make you feel vibrant, confident, and loved when wearing your jewelry. Ptera truly is a company...
A company rooted in love.
Jewelry is a powerful addition to any outfit; not just because of its brilliance and beauty, but because of the significance that can be given to it. When you purchase a piece from us, we want you to think of it as a gift from you to yourself. We want that piece to serve as a display of affection towards yourself and as a reminder to treat yourself with the same level of love and appreciation you show to others.
Please contact me with any questions you may have about my designs or custom orders. We can work together to determine what might be the most creative solutions for your special gift, event or milestone.
