The Sun Stripes Jewel Beetle has sexy orange, yellow and blue stripes under its subtle pink/gold dichroic iridescence! It's ULTRA-detailed just like all of my work - with individual tarsae (segments) in its feet, tiny claws, mandibles, and many-segmented antennae. Very life-like!

Short video of this piece, just before I finished making it:


He is made of Effetre (aka "soft") glass via the lampworking technique - sculpted from molten glass rods, over an oxy-propane torch. Afterward, it has been annealed in a digitally-controlled kiln, so is fully stabilized and when properly cared for, should last several human lifetimes (much longer than a live beetle!)
