This beetle is completely stitched by hand. Its body is woollen felt, stuffed with pure wool. Its wing covers (elytra!) are stitched with cotton and silk threads and tiny sequins over silk. Under the elytra are delicate iridescent wings embroidered with white thread. The antenna and legs are wire, hand wound with cotton threads. It is embellished over its thorax with sequins and thread. 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.
