It\'s a modular bangle meant for displaying your favorite insects. There are air-holes so they can remain living while you wear them! Jorge and I designed the bangle for some mealworms we procured at Petco. They like dry oatmeal or some hunks of potato. We\'d love to see some inspired creations!

If you like the bracelet, check a former project at ITP, Jill Haefele's Cricket Headphones! They are amazing!
Laser-cut more of less of the middle modules (there are four in the file) to change the thickness of the design. The length of your screws will change according to the thickness of your material (we used 1/4\" thick acrlic) as well as the number of layers (we used four inner layers + the two outer = approx 1.5\" length). Mealworms can be purchased at Petco, but we hope you use other insects!
