Caddis fly

phrygane2While we are on the subject of very cool bug, -e- sent me a link to The Zymoglyphic Museum Curator’s Web Log: “Designer” Jewelry with Insect Larvae which features the art collaboration of Hubert Duprat and a caddis fly. The caddis fly larvae create a wearable tube out of the materials in their natural environment. Mr. Duprat plays with the process by giving the bugs gold dust and gems stones to make their shells.
