Referencing Egyptian scarab jewelry with our Modern twist, we have constructed this beetle brooch using vintage grenadilla clarinet bodies. The housing is fabricated from sterling silver, nickel silver and brass, with bronze and carnelian eyes. The beetle's head and feet are cast and carved epoxy resin with mica accents and it holds an epoxy resin and mother of pearl "gem". Bright bronze leaf shimmers beneath the beetle /clarinet wings. With a hand made stainless steel pin stem. 2.5 x 2.25 x 0.5".
