DETRITUS FULL STUDS

Tired of boring, mass produced jewelry? Ready for handmade pieces that won't break the bank?
Thes DETRITUS studs are the perfect addition to your everyday ensemble. Easy to wear to the office, party, or even cosplay and festival events, and you won't have to change from day to night.

The DETRITUS collection features geometric shapes constructed of square brass wire and spaces filled with cut pieces of beetle wings, emphasizing strength and fragility. These wings, formally elytra, are from the jewel beetle, native to Thailand, and are natural in their coloring. The DETRITUS collection is the most recent reflection of my work on highlighting the beauty and importance of beetles in our world.

*Feel like your inner goddess as you turn heads left and right.*


* SIZE: 3/4" diameter

* MATERIALS: Brass, 925 Sterling Silver ear post, Cut Beetle wings

* PRODUCTION TIME: 3 weeks. Made to order.

Beetle wings are fragile. They will withstand normal wear though.
For necklaces that have sewn beetle wings on, the wings are all backed with resin. Be careful not to get leather pieces wet.
For metal jewelry, tarnish can be removed with store bought tarnish remover.
I do have gift wrapping available for free. Please message me if you would like to include it with your order. If you are shipping a gift to a friend please let me know in the comments what type of message to include with the gift.
Yes! They are taxidermy forewings of the Jewel beetle native to Thailand.
I did not personally kill a single beetle in the making of your jewelry! Jewel beetles only have a four day lifespan and once they die they shed their wings. They are harvested in Thailand.

    Catie has always made stunning pieces for me, including a pair of her famous beetlewing earrings, which always earn me compliments, and my wedding ring. But she outdid herself this time when she created three necklaces as a memorial for my sister in law, whose daughter passed away at 34 weeks gestation.

    The butterflies and angel wing will be worn by my sister in law, her husband, and her older daughter. They represent such a sweet and hopeful remembrance, keeping their sweet little girl close to their hearts even though she cannot be in their arms.

    The piece us really beautiful. The chains between the pieces are a little long so it makes them hard to wear across the forehead as shown in the picture, so that is a little disappointing. I may try to shorten those chains myself to fit my head.
