These fascinating terrarium taxidermy necklaces are made with REAL beetles, dried & preserved to last! I have chosen the most colorful & iridescent species of jewel and weevil beetles I could find for these necklaces! They are all naturally brightly colored & gorgeous, I have not done anything to enhance their color. Each beetle is enclosed inside a 1.5" glass terrarium vial with filigree metal accents and hung on a long 30" chain. Pendant & chain come in your choice of metal: Antique gold / bronze (as pictured), Yellow gold tone, Rose gold tone, Silver tone, or Gunmetal (chains shown in 9th photo).
The necklace will come in a custom gift bag with literature on the species of insect and a free die-cut sticker or magnet! Choose your beetle species (going from left to right in the 2nd photo).
