Real Bug Jewelry

Lovely and unusual jewelry made out of real bugs! No worries though. We didn’t kill anything for the purpose of making jewelry - all the bug jewelry is made out recycled bugs. These critters were either used in scientific experiments, found dead of natural (or sometimes motor vehicle) causes, or were pests that needed to be removed. Jewelry is available from our sister company Earthen Gypsy Designs.
