an origami atlas beetle brooch/pin. the wing-case and upper body are made from handmade paper, pre-printed with one of my designs. i've also pre-printed this design on to silver paper, gold paper and semi-translucent vellum. if you'd prefer one of those please just send me a note with the sale.

quite durable with all of the layers of varnish - one of the few beetles that my cat can't destroy!

i often wear my beetle on my top hat or as a feature piece on a choker.

paper: pre-printed handmade paper

finding: brass tie pin/lapel pin

size: length 60mm

all of my origami pieces have been coated with 3-4 layers of epoxy varnish making them highly durable - kitten proof and crash tested with small children. the uv-stabilizer in the varnish also prevents the colours and art fading over time.
