Electroformed REAL Cicada... died shedding, naturally.   So I preserved him for all time!  Finished on a robust patinaed venetian copper chain 19" long. His body also features and gorgeous Hessonite garnet and a spirit Quartz. He's truly one of a kind. 

This process is time consuming.. and he was very delicate.  I adorned him with Garnets and sealed him well.

Since ancient times, the cicada has been seen as a symbol of resurrection, an association that owes to its fascinating life cycle. Newly hatched insects drop from branches to burrow into the ground, where they nourish themselves on tree roots for as long as seventeen years before emerging into the sunlight
