Butterfly Beetles.................

Here's a couple of beetles from this weeks table.
These are made with little butterfly samplers that I had. Admittedly I have had them a while and wasn't really sure what to do with them as they were small and round and a little delicate.
I think they make a nice feature,beetles and butterflies together.Perfect.












The next insect/bug I'm thinking of doing is a Vinegaroon.
Beautiful,I love them,they do look slightly terrifying but if you look at them on the Internet there are tons of pictures of people holding them.
They feed on cockroaches and crickets so are valuble as pest control.




Black leather and iron wire me thinks.

  2. Love the butterfly beetles...I have a feeling they are going to fly right out of your shop...no pun intended! :))) That other bug is indeed terrifying looking!! Not sure I wouldn't rather have the cockroaches to tell the truth... scary!

  3. Hi!
    As I discovered your little beasts I thought about an art work I have made 10 years ago.
    My "insects" are also "elves" or "mummified cat miniatures"...
