COLEOPTERA PENDANT

My object of the month: Louise Hibbert and her beautiful bug inspired pendants.

The bodies are made from sycamore – turned and carved or pyrographed before being airbrushed with acrylic inks. The dotted ones are textured with acrylic resin. The copper is often textured with a subtle hammered pattern and heat treated to achieve the rich dappled colours. Some also have reclaimed 18ct gold eyes.
