Description

UGLY PRETTY DESIGNS
Where beauty is in the eye of the beholder...

Welcome to Ugly Pretty Designs, an idea born from my love of insects and all things unusual.

Each item is lovingly hand decorated by me using individually applied genuine Swarovski Elements crystals. I typically look to enhance the natural beauty, but just as often I will go to the extreme!


"The ebb and flow of the tides" #1

Presenting a pair of hand-decorated fiddler crabs set in a box frame.


End of life: 08/2016
Reborn: 02/2018
Swarovski Elements: Rose Gold | Light Peach | Light Colorado Topaz
Average length: 9cm
Frame size: 23cm x 23cm x 4.5cm


To get the best from this piece I recommend you hang the frame either where there is good natural daylight or close to indoor lighting, where it will really sparkle. Best avoided are dark corners or direct sunlight.


COMMISSIONS
I am always happy to consider commissioned work so please do drop me a line and we'll go from there. Please note however that the creation and thus the shipping time will be longer for individually made pieces.
Currently, and with regret, I am not able to offer decorated butterflies.

THE ETHICAL DEBATE
The insects I use are both captive bred and wild collected. All wild collected species are sustainably sourced. No species I sell are endangered. My suppliers generally deal directly with local collectors and thus monies earned go into their communities. Those dependent on insect collection for their income naturally aim to protect their environment. Those species caught in the wild will have already bred - males will have already paired and females will have already laid ova.
