Do You Want To Be Close To An Insect?

Modelo-Brazalete-082Do You Like Insects?  To wear on your body?

Fashion is going more and more into organic forms, we started with floral patterns, we are now going into vivid colors and we are finally getting into organic forms such as insects. Not everyone would like to carry a bug in their earts, hair, or wrist, some even suffer from insectophobia. But looking a some very beautiful bee earrings might change your mind.   NAOMI from sweetvioletbride shows us all a nice little gallery with some beautiful insect jewelry pieces.  insect jewelry gallery  tumblr_lojoccVltI1qc2w0eo1_500

Zopherus Beetle Mayan Jewelry

In the other hand if you are more interested on very exotic looking  jewelry, you need to read about the Zopherus jewelry.  The Zopherus beetle, on the Mayan culture achieved mainstream popularity as live jewelry. The Zopherus beetle is a large, docile, wingless insect which is decorated with gold and semi-precious gemstones and is attached to a decorative safety pin by a chain leash. During the Mayan period, women from the Yucatán Peninsulawore Zopherus Beetles pinned to their chests, over their hearts, to attract and sustain loving relationships. The tradition is attributed to a story from Mayan folklore, which believes that when a Mayan princess was not permitted to marry a prince from a rival clan whom she loved, she stopped eating and drinking, prefering to die than to live without her lover. In compassion with her plight, a traditional healer with magical powers transformed her into a Zopherus beetle, so that she could spend the rest of her life living as a beautiful brooch on the chest of her lover, close to his heart.

The beetle is called an “ironclad beetle.” It eats wood (dead or alive) and fungus, which admittedly comes with eating dead wood.
They are native to Mexico down to Venezuela.There are several genera of ironclad beetles, but the one used in jewelry is Zopherus.

They have one of the toughest exoskeletons of all arthropods in general, they cannot even fly due to their weight. They are so sturdy that they can handle being living bling.

this kind of art might be a bit harsh on insects

since you have to kill then to place them on resin,

yet  it can end up being quite a beautiful artwork.

At the end whether you wear some beautiful dragonfly pin made out of all fine pewter metal and stone mosaics,

maybe a live beetle full of precious stones and some gold chain or even a nice pendant with a scorpion on it.

Insects are in Fashion.

Be different, be you.

If you like to have an insect near you, maybe you should try on an abalone shell scorpion belt buckle.

Catholic Religion in Fashion – The Virgin Mary!

CATHOLIC RELIGION IN FASHION – The Virgin Mary!

Picture 45

Mexico is about 83.9 percent catholic and we usually don’t dress as Virgin Mary but Jean Paul Gaultier has done so  Virgin Mary and Virgin De Los Dolores are now doing a runway.

Fashion designer Jean Paul Gaultier’s Spring/Summer 2007 haute couture collection introduced at Paris Couture Week clearly borrowed heavily from art and religion.

The stunning gowns, headgear, shoes –even hair and makeup styling are an homage to the Virgin Mary and religious art.

As beautiful it may seen some people would think of this an insult, since the vestments that virgins and saint wear are for gods only and are seen as holy.Many of the saints and virgins are dressed with beautiful and expensive fabrics to show divine.

But it is incredible how beautiful this models look dress as virgins. with a whole look with halos and stained glass art,
many even carried a bible with them, the makeup and hair do was made to mach the appearance of the virgins.  Simply stunning.

Fashion that is taking inspiration from traditional religion.

Tribal Necklace Fashion


il_fullxfull.358824180_bawb
Tribal Jewelry has traditionally been constructed from natural materials such as ivory, resin, horn, bone, seeds, wood, shells, animal teeth and claws, metal, hair, and stone. These materials have been used to create chokers, necklaces, rings, earrings, which have been used in a variety of ways. You can find yours at a handmade jewelry store or you can even make it your self. You just need some beads, small stones, or shells, some string and time to make your own necklace.

Most of the time we are very comfortable wearing the small pearls or a simple reliquary but some times we need to push our selfs out of our comfort zone  to see how good a tribal necklace looks on us.

If you are thinking about buying your necklace, there is good places to find them such as Etsy or you can even go further in and find good pages o places where you can buy and help Artisans around the world.

If you are interested on making your own tribal necklace there is good tutorials about jewelry making , here is a link to the Tutorial.

once you bought or made your necklace it is a good idea to know how to wear it, that’s why thisismyyear from Squidoo tells us more about how you can wear a tribal necklace and why.
