Beetle necklaces

A touch of fauna in the botanical theme. During XVII century, floral composition paintings were a popular theme, were the bouquet evoked the transitional state of our life on earth. It associated the flower in its glory as well as the withered one with falling petals. If the butterflies and the dragonflies symbolised the soul, the lizard and the fly imaged death and rotting. These cool long beetles necklaces, that you would wear like a backstage pass to a concert, are a celebration to a fun young life.
