Project Design: Beetle Jewelry

Last night, the Project Accessory designers were challenged to create accessories for a red carpet look. As a twist they were taken to an oddities shop and instructed to choose a creepy crawly bug as inspiration. Nina, is a brave woman and chose a spider, which nearly earned her a win. But the beetle stole the show. Rich created eye catching, but almost too realistic beetle jewelry. His brooch (below), necklace (right), earrings and ring would probably only be sported by a brave and interesting celeb. I loved the idea of bugs as jewelry. (Even though I hate the very idea of bugs). Which creepy critter from Etsy would you consider red carpet ready?
