Beetle Mania

Standard

This is how the Egyptian beetle project turned out – it took some doing getting the pieces to fit well on the cuff bracelet but all in all I’m pretty pleased with it!

The brass beetle charm and the stamping beneath it were purchased at www.bsueboutiques.com.

About lilruby jewelry

My name is Joan Williams and I'm a self taught jewelry designer and mixed media artist. I was born and raised in the Chicago area, and I now live in the Missouri Ozarks with my husband, son and jillions of beads - along with lots of ephemera and stuff that my packrat ancestors saved (and I'm so glad they did)! My passion is creating jewelry that bears the patina of time and travel, using a blend of new components and found objects. I'm also crazy about antiques, horses, flowers, rusty hinges and chipped paint, so you never know what I might be inspired to talk about. I hope you'll stop by from time to time to see what I'm up to! Click below to visit my Etsy shop and my Facebook page, and to see additional photos on Flickr.

    • Thanks! I used ICE resin as a glue – it’s effective, but not very easy. The resin takes a long time to dry and until it did the metal pieces wanted to slide around. Next time I’d probably use a couple of rivets to hold the bottom pieces in place and then glue the beetle.
