A real cicada, encased forever in copper as part of the copper electroforming process.
This one is adorned with a teal-y green crescent moon above, and a lovely purple amethyst cabochon below. Gunmetal chain is accented with labradorite gemstone rosary chain. The thorax on this one seems to have caved in a bit during the drying process, so I slightly discounted him. Nature is imperfect, what can I say?

Dimensions:
Pendant is  3.5" wingtip to wingtip and just under 2.5" top to bottom.
Total necklace length (chain + span of the necklace) is 17". If you need an extender on this, just let me know :)

Insect Source:
When possible I use found, naturally deceased insects and taxidermy/dry them myself. However the larger insects I purchase from an overseas insect farm where they are grown for food, and are not wild harvested. This method is sustainable and areas used for the insect farms are kept forested and not clear cut. The farms also provide jobs for the local community.
