This beetle took on a life of its own the moment I saw the pliers(?) that make up its body--the handles screamed mandibles! Other materials used: wire, stone bead, metal beads.
~5" long


  1. Oh...I love the new beetle....he is very cool and kinda scary looking.....is it pliers or some type of vise? Whatever....it is genious!

  2. Hello, thank you Laura! Yes, some type of pliers with a clamp or vise on the other end?I've never seen that kind before; but they are a great "crusty" tool find from my mom ;)
