About

Preserving Wildlife For Fashion

Ever since I was a little kid, I have always been fascinated by wildlife. Maybe it's because I'm an earth sign, Virgo. Who knows? I was born in Brazil and grew up in New York. Unfortunately the only wild life I ever really came close too was playing with fireflies in the hot NY summer nights and trying to feed pigeons and squirrels in my neighborhood. I even have this very slight memory of me putting string around large ants in Brazil and walking them around like dogs on a leash. When I first moved to Florida in my teenage years, I saw so many different animals and bugs running around and began to feel like a kid in a candy store. I quickly got a job at my local exotic pet shop as soon as I was old enough to work and from then on, I knew I had found something that would keep a smile on my face. One of my co-workers shared his appreciation for bugs with me and whenever our pet bugs would die, we never wanted to just toss them out. They seem so alien and you get this urge to put them on display. I found that one of my desert hairy scorpions fell apart when I displayed it in a shadow-box that got over run by mites that tore apart its deceased carcass. I looked for many different sealing sprays to keep them intact. Finally, I discovered that Epoxy Resin would do the trick and the rest is history. I never kill bugs or animals for display in my jewelry. They are sent to me by fans, found dead around my house, or have been long-kept pets that passed away usually from old age. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do, I will try to put some facts about the bugs in my postings for the resin pieces so you can see why they are so interesting!
