The Sierpinski Triangle is a simple and intuitive fractal. Start with a triangle. Make 2 copies of that triangle and join all 3 at their points so there is a 4th blank triangle in the middle. Then, make 2 copies of that image and combine it with the original around another blank triangle in the middle. Do this again, and again, and again and you'll get a Sierpinski Triangle.
This is a 4th iteration of the fractal Sierpinski Triangle and is made from 9 smaller triangles. Each smaller triangle is made from one strand of wire, then joined together to create a larger triangle. The top layer is midnight blue, then aqua, purple and the tip is antiqued bronze. The colours chosen remind me of those iridescent beetles, hence the title. The triangle is 5.5 cm (2.25") wide at the top, where it hangs from an antiqued bronze bar, and hangs on a 41 cm (16") antiqued brass chain. (Chain can be shortened or lengthened, as desired.)
