With the arrival of the 17 year brood of Cicadas, we started seeing wings and immediately thought of earrings to commemorate the long journey to the surface for these wings. They took many, many coats of sealant (and a ton of patience) because they are thinner and more brittle than we imagined when undertaking this project. Each pair of earrings is one of a kind with differences as happen in nature, but we have 5 embellishments to choose from.
Please note: The cicada is a very tasty morsel for birds and other creatures, and they leave the wings behind. We heard tales of piles of wings that the wind brought together. We harmed no cicadas in the creation of these beauties.
