Those looking for an unusual accessory to stand out during the Fashion Week festivities that are currently underway in New York and, soon, other cities around the world, look no further than the Makech Beetle jewelry pieces. Animal and insect motifs may be huge right not in the accessory department, but the Makech Beetle jewelry takes it to the next level. It involves live beetles.

The Makech Beetle jewelry fad thrives particularly high in the Yucatan region of Mexico where the insects can be found in abundance. What sets them aside from odd pets is the fact that people bedazzle their shells with gems, chains and glittery paint to turn them into crawling jewelry designs. They will capture anyone's attention immediately.
