I made this guy as an experiment. My lovely Arum is modeling it. This Silver rhino beetle has 8 legs, assembled from 3 different beetle species. The articulated vertebrae tail is detachable. It actually belongs to another project of mine, but I attached it to the bug out of curiosity and loved the look of it. Because, why not?

    Holy goodness. I’m going to be honest, I’m not too fond of bugs of any sort… but this guy? He’s an exception for sure.

    Well, if this was an experiment, it’s a fabulously successful one! Marina, your imaginative creations never cease to amaze me.
    The vertebrae tail is awesome. I’d really love to see the project that this was actually meant for as well!

  11. Marina says:

  20. kelly says:

    Crazy. Love it.

  21. Astera says:

    Splendid. Insects spook me a little, but they are fascinating and your crowns reveals their beautiful side, too!

  22. Amoreen says:

    Wow, i am totally speachless! Beatle helmet is just gorgeous! And I’ve been trying to figure out how it would be to have a Beauty headpiece without horns for months… et voilà! Looove it!

  23. Marilie says:

    It’s incredibly beautiful! I think it’s my favourite headdress so far! I love how the beetle contrast with the more feminine and delicate curves of the piece. It reminds me a bit of Alexander McQueen’s aesthetic.

  24. Marina says:

    Alexander McQueen is a great inspiration of mine. His style really resonates with my own aesthetic preferences.

  25. Annina says:

    oh wow, i love it! it’s so different, refreshing!
    the articulated vertebrae tail is my favourite part, it looks amazing wound around her neck!
    will not mind more pics of this! ;)

  26. Alivtina says:

    Marina, it’s great! I had never seen anything like it!

  27. Maia says:

    Beautiful. Who would think a beetle could look so gorgeous and elegant and still very ‘bug-ish’ all at the same time? True art. I love it! I love all of the detail and sharp look about it (yes I thought of Alexander McQueen for a moment also). Thanks for
    the pictures!

  28. sara says:

    OM!! that looks adorable though it’s terrifying. this beetle reminds me of the Art of ancient Egyptز it’s unique and i’d like to see more pics =)

  29. Out of this world……..love!

  30. alma says:

    Es hermoso!!!

  31. Lean says:

    A work of art for an Art Doll’s head! Gorgeous and original, congrats!!

  32. Crystal says:

    It does look like an entity in and of itself kind of hitching a ride on a lovely lady :)
    It would be wonderful if you had a few interesting head pieces available for sale, maybe limited?

  33. jacci says:

    it would be seriously cool if you make these into some sort of pendent. with that tail and all, i’d buy one.

  34. Drycha says:

    incredible work! :)

  35. Sue says:

    A new level of Cool!

  36. Orangey says:

    Very impressive, this crown is an art all to itself! It’s fantastic atop her head, amazing how it frames her face, kind of this strong heavy presence about her, makes one wonder of her story. Bravo!

    Your last 4 or 5 blog entries just appeared all at once. I thought maybe you were on vacation but they span almost a month. I checked the site once or twice a week during that time but their were no updates. Perhaps there was a problem with your site and that would explain why some people were worried about your absence. Regards.

  38. Merri says:

    a – Sometimes the ‘recent blog post’ heading on the home page isn’t up to date. It’s always best to check the blog itself, just in case. :)

  39. a says:

    Merri, I was checking the blog itself, but thanks for your comment.

  40. killebrew says:

    i’ve noticed that the ‘recent blog post’ on the front page isn’t always up-to-date (some sort of posting lag?), but when i click the ‘blog’ link everything is current.

    also, it’s always up-to-date in google reader.

  41. Clarissa says:

    That is absolutely crazy. Awesomely crazy. I think this has got to be the coolest of all your inventive jewellery pieces you’ve made so far. Definitely awesome. Keep up the great work Marina!

  42. Cyriaque_L says:

    That’s so beautiful and amazing !

  43. Kate says:

    That is freaking stunning! Now, I wouldn’t want to run across that creature in real life… but it’s amazing how something so potentially scary can be made beautiful! There’s something about the proportions and braid-like look of the tail that really make this work.

  44. Andrea says:

    LOVE this!!!

  45. soof says:

    JUST AMAZING !!!!

  46. Kalar Walters says:

    Highly creative and gorgeous! I love it! Great job!
