an origami atlas beetle brooch/pin. the wing-case and upper body are made from a minature monoprint of a lace doily.

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-coloured art paper, monoprint on 'curious metallics'

finding: nickle-plated 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. the uv-stabilizer in the varnish also prevents the colours and art fading over time.
