These real beetle wings are the ultimate in luxury adornment for your finest needlework projects!
They have a beautiful iridescent colour, changing from red to green depending on which way you look at them. Wings range from 3-4cm in length and are approximately 1cm wide.
This item is for 20 wings in red/green colour without holes.
[If you want to make holes to attach them through, place some cushioning underneath the wing (blue/sticky tack or soft fabric works well) and push a needle through the wing. Do this carefully as they are quite brittle]
Please note: the wings are organic so inevitably they will differ slightly in colour, shape, texture and size.
These wings come from the Asian beetle Stenocera aequisignata and are a by product of an every day food source. They are farmed in accordance with the regulations of CITES (Convention of International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora).
