Caddis flies make gold jewelry!

Every now and then an artist comes along who just blows my mind with their creative thinking and execution

I mean, theoretically I understand how people come up with stuff like this, but .... do I?

For those of you who did not open the link, but you should because there's a video in there, these are caddis fly larvae, and they make little tunnely shelters for themselves out of whatever materials are around. Usually it's mud and rocks and sticks, but the artist Hubert Duprat, took them out of their natural environment and gave them gold and gems to build with, because he's an artist and that's what artists do.


  1. I got a message that says my current account does not have access to view the vid.

  2. Really? It didn't just open in the link? Hmmm. Well, it was a low-res video of a fly constructing one of the cases.

  3. Very nice design love this and thanks for this post..
