Learn the secrets of working with natural beetle wings while crafting opulent earrings, or a fantastic necklace!

The Crystal Scarab Earrings feature a cascade of crystal-embellished Jewel-beetle wings dropped gracefully from post-backed bead embroidered medallions featuring Swarovski Scarabs at their center.

These kits have the Antiqued Brass findings and beads.

The Crystal Scarab Necklace contains elements complimentary to the earrings with a bit more flair, and enough chain to make it as long or short as you like.

Both tutorials will cover how to crystallize natural beetle wings, (and make them stick!), as well as crafting a Peyote Bezel for an unusually shaped object. 

Beaded Backstich, Brick Stitch Edging, Basic Wrapped Loop, Simple Chainlinking, and Briolette Wrap are also used.

I would consider this an Intermediate kit with Peyote Stitch, Brick Stitch Edging, and Wrapped Wire Loop required.

The finished earrings measure approximately 3-15/16" on Stainless Steel post backs.

The finished necklace can measure up to 31.5 inches long including the top ornamentation, up to 24 inches of chain, and a 2 inch extender chain, so you choose the length!

The necklace pendant measure approximately 3-15/16" long, and is not included in the finished necklace length above.
