Specimen #01107, 7/8/2000

Wingspan: 3.5 inches (9 cm)

Composition: Sterling silver wire, steel utility blades, Swiss watch mechanisms

Comments: The wings are darker in reality, a dark blue sheen on the steel. The circular watch body says "3ADJ GLYCINE W.C. SWISS" and "18 JEWELS". Those three visible red gems are quite striking.
