How are living beetle brooches made?



  1. 0 Votes

    A large, still-living beetle is decorated with jewels and sometimes gold leaf or chain, which is typically just glued on to the exoskeleton. A chain then links the beetle by it’s decorations to the piece of clothing, or it may be held by a leash. MAny animal rights groups including PETA consider this trend to be an inexcusable violation of animal rights: it may hurt the insect, it interferes with their ability to move and molt, and they may starve while trapped on someone’s clothing (although the jeweled insect that made headlines was a Tenebrionid beetle, which does not feed or fly as an adult).
