These tiny handcrafted cicada wings add a lovely nature element to your wardrobe. I crafted this cicada wing from one I collected near Dallas, TX after the end of its life cycle.
Bronze wings dangle with a delicate light movement from 14K gold filled handcrafted ear wires and rings
Wing measures approximately 1/2"L x 3/8"W
The bronze wing is made with 100% natural un-lacquered bronze and therefore will naturally patina over time.
Each piece is molded, cut and crafted by hand using metal clay from a mold I made from a real cicada wing and then is kiln fired and finished to this beautiful and unique solid metal piece of jewelry.
As with any handmade item, variations are to be expected and enjoyed!
*Bronze is composed of 90%copper and 10%tin and is nickel free.
*14K gold-filled is an actual layer of 14 carat gold - pressure bonded onto a base metal. It is not gold-plate - it has more gold than gold-plating, will not flake off and is far more valuable and tarnish resistant.
*If this item is out of stock, it will take approximately 2 weeks to create.
