papilio dardanus meriones brooch by thebluekraken
papilio dardanus meriones brooch
Several weeks of work that went into this one. Hand cut filigree, circuit board, ebony inlay, acrylic, resin, the body is solid silver.

The butterfly itself is also know as the mocker swallowtail and is native to Sub-Saharan Africa and Madagascar. It's known to imitate other butterflies that are toxic as a camouflage. The female can mimic up to 14 other species of butterflies and come in a range of yellows oranges, blacks and whites. The male is usually monochromatic.

Lemon Set by thebluekraken
Lemon Set
I've probably posted these pieces before separately but here they are as a set, maybe photographed a little better and cleaner. All sterling silver metal work, some wire work and a pierced open back in the earrings and pendant. The opening is to allow light through the circuit board and its all sealed in resin. The pendants back piercing is a celtic design with celtic knot bail.

Hi I came across this other artist who also works with circuit boards and thought you might be interested in taking a look.  She seems to do mostly insects, but there are some neat techniques.  www.lostateminor.com/2015/04/2…  Hope you enjoy! :)
