A real cicada, encased forever in copper as part of the copper electroforming process.
This one is adorned with a beautiful teardrop shaped tourmalinated rainbow moonstone, and a little labradorite.  This one was so large it was hard to fit it into the electroforming bath, and the right wing ended up forming a little kinked, but it doesn't really affect how it sits. I did discount this one a bit due to that, though.

Dimensions:
Pendant is  5 3/8" wingtip to wingtip and 3" from upper leg tip to thorax tip.
Necklace total length is 19" (chain itself is 15", but there's also a 4" span between the necklace points on the insect). If you need the chain longer or shorter, 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.
