I decided to base this beetle ring off of the rhino beetle. Like the golden stag beetle ring, this beetle is make with polymer clay and painted with pastel purple acrylic paint, then glazed. There’s a pearly and glittery finish on this cute bug that goes well with the rhinestone eyes.

There’s wire inside the beetle to prevent delicate parts like the horns and legs from breaking! You can buy it here.

I’m very excited about all of the beetle jewelry I made, especially this little guy! This is a golden stag beetle ring I made with oven-bake polymer clay. I painted it with glittery gold acrylic paint and sealed it with gloss glaze. The eyes are cute little mini rhinestones that are super sparkly.

I actually put wire inside the beetle while sculpting it to ensure the delicate parts like the pincers and legs don’t break!

You can buy this cute little bug here.

I made my first sale today! I feel super motivated now. I’m glad one of my hats will make someone happy.

Here’s a preview of some of the jewelry I’ll be selling in my Etsy shop very soon. (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧
