I've always had a curiosity and interest in bugs from childhood.  I was never frightened of any of them even though some of them, in the tropics where I grew up, were poisonous.  I even reared butterflies and silkworms (had to go begging for mulberry leaves from a neighborhood garden) for a time.

The only reason why I never took up entomology as a career is because I hated field work!  (I spent my working life in laboratories.)

But I still love insects and love to see them depicted in jewelry designs. Here are some excellent ones.

The above crystal and seedbead ladybug pendant tutorial is by Pearlie of Splendere.  The use of crystal makes this design look expensive!

This gorgeous stumpwork and bead embroidered beetle brooch tutorial is by Emma of  EmmaHallArt.

Bees are so important for pollination of many of our food crops. In recent years, their numbers are in decline due to bee parasites, pesticides and habitat loss. Do your bit by planting bee friendly plants and avoid chemicals in your garden. And bring awareness to these important insects by wearing a bee brooch. This lovely beaded bee tutorial is by Vitalija  of VitalijaVelyviene.

I've shared this gorgeous beaded butterfly tutorial by Sandra Scholte's of TrinketsBeadwork before. It merits a second showing!

This bead embroidered butterfly brooch tutorial is unusual because of the use of sequins. The designer is Julia Järveküla of JarvekulaEmbroidery.
