"These creative critters are hand-crafted making each piece a one of kind item. They are made by gluing colorful Austrian Swarovski crystals to the creature’s back. When you wear it, you attach the brooch to your blouse with a pin. There's a little chain that you hook to the roach so it can walk around a little bit but is prevented from moving around too far. "
"The brooches sell for $80 each and have reportedly been scurrying off the shelves. With proper care and feeding they say you can have your roach brooch for a year or longer. A dubious claim no doubt, but these roaches can live that long so it may be true."
