Insects rule the world, and the great green disk is a hand made clay bead, but you could just as well think that they are balancing the world on the tips of their mandibles! Springtime and insects go together. Need to get rid of bad ones? Not the earrings! But use NEEM OIL. So safe you could take a bath in it. I would love to make more entomological earrings! I'm sure they have their own fashion statement to make.
