Announcement   Hand crafted insects and spiders as ornaments and jewellery made from silver plated copper wire, glass, driftwood, gemstones and sheet copper. Made in Scotland.

Figuring I couldn’t make a living from making things, I chose a more sensible route and took an Ecology degree. Subsequently I discovered that I could combine my artistic flair with a lifelong interest in the natural world, and the science I had studied my degree. The results are my beasties; startlingly full of life, based on actual species and intriguing to lovers and haters of spiders and insects alike.

I also make construct detailed and realistic spiders webs on drift wood and colonies of leafcutter ants which can be seen at www.beckasinsects.co.uk

I absolutely LOVE these earrings. They are sturdy yet intricate and just as pictured. A great set of earrings for an insect enthusiast.

As always, Becka was a pleasure to do business with. Her work is beautiful! The purchase was easy, and the delivery was quicker than expected. Hopefully, one day I can get to Edinburgh to buy directly from her!!

About

Hello, I'm Becka and I live in Edinburgh with two small people, another big person and a cat. I feel very lucky to do what I do for a living. Figuring I couldn’t make a living from making things, I chose a more sensible route and took an Ecology degree. Subsequently I discovered that I could by combining my artistic flair with a lifelong interest in the natural world, and the science I had studied my degree. The results are my beasties; startlingly full of life, based on native British species and intriguing to lovers and haters of spiders and insects alike.

They are created from silver plated wire, glass, driftwood, gemstones and sheet copper.

Since I'm making new people these days as well as beasties, I tend to stay close to home doing stalls such as the Edinburgh Fringe, supplying a number of shops and of course making pieces ordered directly by you. Please bear with me and let me know if your order is urgent as my available making time is sometimes childcare dependant.
