You say crazy, but I say crazy awesome! I love everything about this hoop, from the vintage specimen setup to the clockwork details to the colour scheme chosen. Fabulous job! Definitely wisted <3

Thanks everybody!  It makes me wanna do more vintage speciman steampunk insects.. for some reasons insects just really translate into steampunk well.  Perhaps a beetle, or butterfly, a non-threatening-looking spider..(wait is there such a thing?), It could be a really interesting series...

I'm with Kaeleira - I like everything about this! The idea of a clockwork dragonfly is great in itself, and presenting it as an entomological specimen is even more brilliant, but then doing the whole thing in needlework just moves it to a whole new level!

Melladh is right, though, your drawing would make an awesome tattoo!

That's gorgeous!  You could totally sell that design -- it's professional good.
