Electroformed Real Weavil Beetle Earrings with Amazonite
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. Tiny raw chips of Amazonite are set in bezels on each side of the beetles.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.
