This tiny handcrafted cicada wing is great to layer up and a lovely delicate addition to your boho stack! I crafted this cicada wing from one I collected near Dallas, TX after the end of its life cycle.
It dangles along a 16"L chain with a 1"L extender chain, total length is 17”L and closes with a spring ring clasp.
Wing measures approximately 1/2"L x 3/8"W
Select between sterling silver or bronze metal options.
The bronze necklace is made with 100% natural un-lacquered bronze and therefore will naturally patina over time. It comes on a 14K gold filled chain.
The sterling silver option is 100% natural un-lacquered .925 sterling silver with an oxidized (darkened) finish
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.
