Handcrafted, soldered glass pendant featuring an image of an illustration of a black beetle on one side, upcycled from a calendar of scientific illustration reprints. On the opposite side, there is a snippet of paper printed with Florentine scrolls.
The images are sandwiched between two pieces of light and durable glass, then hand-soldered with lead-free solder.
1 x 1 inches
