BEETLE BUG JEWELLERY
Talk about being green, why not wear a bug?
What's so weird about that? Well, it's an Emerald Beetle
from Thailand, about 1-1/2" long.
The Thai people catch them and EAT THEM. They pull off
the wings and scoop out the nutty flavoured white meat -
the long-fingered ladies in particular scoop the meat
out easily with their nails.
These beetles died naturally after reproducing, then are
made into pins with brass pieces with legs, glued to the
bottom, and then sold as lovely insect jewellery!
