I recently acquired a box of beads and sequins which included some unusual sequin shapes, these inspired me to create a series of embroidered insects. Many of the sequins were perfect shapes to become wings or beetle bodies. In addition to the sequins I used small pieces of goldwork threads for the legs. These embroideries may eventually become part of a larger project which I am currently working on.
