Real Green Jewel Beetle & Rhinestone Gold Brooch
All pics are by the photographer Matija Pecek (http://matijapecek.wix.com/photography), mvpblack on instagram.
The backing is made out of sturdy gold-tone brass. It also has rhinestone accents around its neck.
It is has a real beetle head, wings, and thorax! It's also quite sturdy, but be careful around the antennas.I have also personally hand coated the head and wing areas with 3 layers of crystal clear acrylic to protect the brooch and make it more sturdy.
This coating doesn't negatively affect the color of the brooch in any way. To clean it, wipe it with a microfiber cloth, it's that easy!
