| April 9, 2012

The idea of having a bedazzled beetle crawling around on your shirt apparently sounds great to an increasing number of people. Maquech brooches, which consist of live beetles with colorful, sparkly gems glued to their backs, are reportedly "all the rage" in Mexico. The bug baubles, which also include a glued-on gold chain to keep your bling from wandering too far, are supposedly an update on an old Mayan tradition. But those who crave the creepy cameos should be warned that, since they are live creatures, it's illegal to import them.
