Put Out Your Feelers For Bug-Inspired Jewelry

Why is it that bugs are so blech when you encounter them in person, but so compelling as brass, bejeweled, blingy baubles? Dragonflies, butterflies, and ladybugs might have adorned our barrettes when we were younger, but the grown-up versions of insect-inspired jewels bring more sinister crawlers into the mix, with beautifully shining beetles, scarabs, winged water bugs, and ants. Click through for the bug jewelry that we find so cool in all of its creepiness!
