Description

This beetle is completely stitched by hand. Its body is hand dyed woollen felt, stuffed with pure wool. Its wing covers (elytra!) are stitched in ivory silk threads over silk brocade. Under the elytra are delicate wings in a fine metallic silk gauze with tiny buttonhole stitched edges. The antenna and legs are wire, hand wound with cotton threads. It is embellished with cotton and silk threads and glass beads. Many careful hours of stitching went into creating this beetle.

The beetles are designed as delightful shelf ornaments. They contain wires and delicate fabrics that make them completely unsuitable as toys.
