Praying Mantis Necklace

Praying Mantis Necklace

Praying mantis’ are one of life’s utterly fascinating creatures and the legendary relationship between the female and male only adds to this. So of course she belongs in my collection!

The Praying Mantis Necklace is one of 2 designs: this necklace, with the mantis positioned horizontally and with a fixed chain; and the alternative pendant version (the Praying Mantis Pendant) with the mantis hanging vertically, and with a removable chain.


My father has been asking me to make him a praying mantis from the moment that I finished my stag beetle. It was a 2 year wait but he finally has his model of a European Praying Mantis proudly sitting on his dressing table.

Convinced that a mantis necklace could be simply the coolest piece of jewellery ever, I set out to work out the best design. Long gangly legs are not so practical when designing jewellery and so the leaf became an integral part of the design.

The mantis model is approximately life-sized.
