Electroformed Real Weavil Beetle Earrings with Herkimers
Handmade earrings created with real Turquoise Weevil Beetles that have been dried and encased in a thick shell of copper using the process of electroforming. These cute little beetles are natural a bright turquoise green color, and while the color is mostly covered in copper, a small clear high quality Herkimer diamond set on the back of each beetle acts like a window to see the color beneath. Each beetle is set on a ring of copper and hung from handmade hypoallergenic Niobium hooks. Oxidized finish and sealed with a clear protective lacquer. All insects used in my work are ethically sourced and cruelty free.
