Goldstone Beetle Ring

The stone making up the beetle’s body in this ring is a gorgeous example of mid-century German glassworkers’ art. It was made by combining molten two colors of glass over a lampworking flame and then hand-pressing the mixture into an oval mold. 

We’re surrounded by bugs in our studio. We’ve got arthropods on buttons, antique plates, fabrics, and posters. Our founder’s grandfather was an entomologist who took his granddaughter on bug-identifying expeditions so our love of bugs runs deep.

In this piece:

  • Khaki & goldstone mirrored glass oval cabochon, made in mid-century West Germany
  • Brass stamping of a beetle, made today in vintage dies in the USA
  • Adjustable brass ring, stamped in today in vintage dies in the USA
