When they’re not moving, one could easily mistake beetles for gemstones. Their colourful chitinous shells encase their bulbous bodies, so smooth as to glint in the light. These bejeweled insects are handcrafted with silver, red and gold thread to be visually striking against the background of see-through black net. Framed in Underlyn’s premium Fire-crafted ‘Ren’ frame, acrylic glazing on both sides allows the viewer to appreciate the making and the stunning outcome of this mesmerizing textile artwork.
