Inspiration for my Woodlouse Lapel Pin
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 Lapel Pin is modelled on a walking woodlouse. However, if you did want one curled into a ball, do get in touch. It would certainly be a unique choice!
The woodlice are also available as a double pendant, earrings or ornaments.
