Does the scorpions look real? Well .... they're actually made of wire from the hardware store. Actually, I have (well.. not me but my son who has interests in exotic animals) a real life scorpion living in terrarium.
I got this tutorial for free from Sherry of http://sherrysjewels.blogspot.com. I found out about her site from Szarka's website (http://magpiegemstones.com) thru Mei of http://wireblissmei.com. I also found out later that Jane of http://handmade-jewelry.club.com also had a post on the scorpion tutorial.
Sherry is a generous lady and she's got some free tutorials (and paid ones) to share. Immediately after observing the scorpion tutorial, I went to the hardware store to get a roll of wire on my way to fetch from my children from school. I completed not one, but three scorpions! I email her two days ago to ask for permission to share these pictures in my blog and she replied, giving me the go ahead.
Thank you, Sherry. =))
