"Bugs and Beads" is a brand created by Vivian, an entomologist (insect scientist) living in Australia to promote the connection between insects and fungi, arts and crafts. She is designing and making jewellery (earrings, necklaces, bracelets, and rings) and collectables as brooches, keyrings, cufflinks, fridge magnets, tote bags, stickers, and other objects, but also she is promoting local and international artwork and artists using insects and fungi as their source of inspiration.
In this shop you will find infinite ideas for gifts, souvenirs and retro collectables for entomologists (insect lovers), mycologists (fungi lovers), zoologists (animal lovers), biologists (life lovers), nature lovers, citizen scientists, amateurs, seniors, adults, teenagers and children. By buying these products, you are supporting several research projects about biology and taxonomy of insects and fungi, edible insects, and also non-profit organizations that will receive donations with every sale.
