Ready for the 2017 arthropod gift idea list? Hopefully I’ve found something for every discerning person on your gift list.
Not only are these spider slippers adorable, but they will also keep your toes toasty on those chilly winter evenings.
If those slippers are a bit too cutesy for you, then you can try these classier Jimmy Choo Sloane scarab slippers. Unfortunately (or fortunately based upon your budget), these are currently sold out.
For the more intellectual person on your gift list, you can try a book. The Beekeeper’s Lab by Kim Lehman is one that I contributed to.
A good coffee table book is Microsculpture: Portrait of Insects by Levon Biss.
If price is no object, you can gift this beautiful topaz ring by Sevan Bicakci…..
…..or if the price tag is a bit too steep and you still want wear your insect, then you can try a Insect Terrarium necklace by Chrysalis Studios.
The last offering comes from Michael Mangiafico of FIG Studios. He’s a glass artist that I took a class from years ago when I was still lampworking. I love his work as much of it has an arthropod theme (we learned how to make a glass scorpion in class). His work is extremely delicate, detailed, and is stunning.
