In some of the ancient refined cultures of Asia, Jeweled Beetle Wings from Thailand were used as adornments for painting, textiles and jewelry. Many different species of metallic wood boring beetles were used depending on the region. The most valued were those from beetles belonging to the genes Sternocera. These beetles have a short life span of just three to four weeks in their adult stage and only those that die of natural causes are collected and used for various items.
Each beetle wing is boiled and then cut into rectangles. Over one hundred rectangle pieces are glued one at a time to a hand painted brass tube. The assembly is then coated with a non-yellowing polyester acrylic poured over the beetle wings over a three day period assuring maximum protection.
These stylish one-of-a-kind writing instruments truly reveal the love of nature and its bountiful gifts. The Beetle Wing Pen comes in a wooden pen box. The pen utilizes a "Parker Style" refill which is readily available at any stationary store. Parker style refills are also available in the Pens Accessories & Supplies section of this website.
