Inspiration for my Woodlouse Ornaments
My woodlice were originally modelled as earrings for the daughter of a very good customer of mine. She felt it was just as important to have the curled woodlouse as well as the walking one. I agree completely. She had a particular fondness for the Pill Woodlouse … or Roly-Poly… or Doodlebug as they are also known. Apparently her love of woodlice is more common than you would have thought, going by the initial reaction to my woodlouse earrings. Having just modelled my slugs and snails, a woodlouse was a natural addition to my range. In fact, ever since I modelled the Yellow-Tailed Scorpion, and learnt that their main foodsource was woodlice, I have always wanted to model one.
The woodlouse Ornaments are sold as a double ornament: one walking woodlouse and one curled into a ball. But be careful to put them in a safe place in case they roly-poly away!
The woodlice are also available as a double pendant, earrings or lapel pins.
