Snowville Variscite Mini Cicada Necklace
One beautiful summer day, I discovered a cicada had met its unfortunate demise in my driveway. I took the opportunity to carefully harvest the beautiful wings and immortalize them in a necklace! The wings on all of the cicadas I make are scale replicas of those original, genuine wings from my driveway. Not perfectly mirrored, they delicately wrap the body of the piece, and the stone inside. This one features a rich Snowville Variscite, and hangs from a fully handmade chain.

This handmade piece is a one of a kind! I will continue to make cicadas, but each will have it's own facial pattern, and unique stones will ensure no two pieces will ever be exactly alike! Many of the stones I use are completely unique, and while I may be able to source the same variety of stone, I will not be able to duplicate exact colors, patterns, or other variations for future designs.
If you are interested in having this piece made in a different size, with different stones, or in a different metal, I'd be happy to discuss creating a custom piece for you!
