QMS partnership with “Bugs and Beads” Shop

“Bugs and Beads” is a small business owned by Vivian Sandoval, an entomologist based in Brisbane who works with insect-fungi interactions. She is also QMS secretary and data collector. Vivian usually sets up a small display table with her handmade fungi jewellery during the monthly QMS meetings at the Herbarium at the Mt Coot-tha botanical gardens, and kindly donates 10% of her sales to the Society.

Due to the COVID-19 restrictions, all our meetings are temporarily cancelled and Vivian cannot reach you to show her products in person, but you can now find her online!

Please visit her online shop at and use the coupon code QMS2020 to ensure the donations to QMS are correctly earmarked during checkout.
