This very majestic beetle is the King of our woods and gardens, its the UK's largest land beetle, rarely seen today due to a lack of old and rotting wood in gardens and parks.
This naturally deceased specimen is now cast in solid silver, ready to have new adventures, and hopefully on the way spread awareness about the importance of rotten wood in gardens.
He is nearly 6cm in length and just shy of 3cm wide, he is a lovely weight.
The silver is darkened before a final polish to highlight the finest details retained from the original natural form, including all his legs on the underside.
This beautiful beetle has a Birmingham hallmark on his underside, he hangs on a 29" chain, the catch works in all the links so he can be worn various lengths.
