30 In Misc


Karen just picked up our first batch of beetle necklaces from the foundry.  Here is a little sneak peek!  If you would like to order one, just e-mail me.  (judy@judyaldridge.com)  I will give you shipping, sizing and pricing info, and supply pics of the various chains available for your beetle.  These are all solid bronze, and quite heavy.

Beetle one 

This is the biggest beetle, he measures 3 inches long.

Hanging beetles 

Pair of beetles 

These are both medium size beetles.

Tiny beetle 

This is the tiniest beetle, and he is not heavy.


I'm partial to this one, he has so much personality!  He is quite large.

    So cool!!
    We also tried your stacked tortilla recipe last night, only we made it all in one pan, kind of a like a Mexican lasagna. We added black beans, and it was delicious!! Picture here: http://inlinethumb40.webshots.com/22183/2802040400101365693S600x600Q85.jpg
    Thanks for the recipe!!

    Can you explain the significance behind the beetle as the chosen insect?
    Congrats & Thanks!

    Karen chose the beetle theme–she has had a life long fascination with insects.

    while I appreciate your interest in me, this won’t work. I see your proxy server. I will never, ever be silenced by you or your buddies. Just saying. xo

    While I’m terrified of beetles, from the view I can see between my fingers, they look well crafted.

    Really sister wolf? Are you feeling victimized? Choking on your own medicine? Bet it tastes Good. Thanks for censoring my comments. Love the beetles.

    Have you ever thought of doing lobsters? They’re not really dissimilar but would work for those of us who love the sea . . .

    Hi, The beetles appear to have a green patina…is that just reflected light? If done purposely what caused such a beautiful reaction? I’d love your input, thanks!
