I have a question for anyone willing to give some input. I am gonna be selling at a convention in the very near future, and I wanted to ask, what kind of bug/ naturey thing would you like to see made into earrings or jewelry in general? So far I have Luna Moths, Monarch butterflies, scarabs, bumble bees, dragonflies, and lady bugs. I also plan on doing some acorns, mushrooms and cherry blossoms.

... Dangly, sectioned caterpillar earrings seem like a neat idea. I would have said Lunamoths but you have them already, heh.

I've always thought they were neat bugs, anyway.

the orginal link is a whip scorpion, not poisonous but very fast!, good luck with the jewellery, if it lives up to your art style then it will look spectacular!

not technically a scorpion, but it is an arachnid and very fast...they like crawling into very thin spaces! And no probs :)

I think lady bugs would make better earrings, scarabs as pendants, bumble bees as a ring maybe, dragonfly as a baretta. not sure of the others but just some thoughts ^^

Oh and if you want to see some beautiful insects look for jewel bugs. Another thing that I thought about are tiny bones like mice skulls. There are so many lovely seed pods worth looking in to as well. And fern makes lovely shapes. Ha! I really like jewelry inspired by small details in nature.

I love bugs in general and is always happy to see them in jewelry. I especially like almost any kind of beetle. I like also like flies, snails, dragonflies and the plainer kinds of moths. I would never wear day butterflies though or ladybugs, those are to cute. Spiders are pretty but I feel like I'm dressing up for halloween with those as jewelry. I really like the acorn idea. Perhaps you could put some of the bugs on leaves? Oak leaves are particulary pretty.

Yes, snail shells would make great jewelry! Especially if they had some nice colors on them... with the spiral, they would be fun to stare at. XD
I also like the idea of luna moths. They have such interesting wings.

I personally really like those bright blue butterflies with the iridescent wings. I don't normally wear jewelry but I would love to see some with that kind of butterfly on it.
