Riveted bronze cicada wing Carico Lake turquoise necklace
This necklace features a Carico Lake mine turquoise set in a thick fine silver bezel. Hand cast bronze cicada wings from a mold of the real thing dangle below. I added a hook style bail on the back of the pendant so it can be worn alone or with the cicada wings. The cicada wings are riveted in place so that you can open and close them. Strung on 18 inches of sterling silver chain.
No cicadas were harmed in the making of this necklace. The cicada was found in my backyard and died of natural causes.
