Inspired by natural beauty, fairy tales and all things whimsical. 

The earring posts are plated 18k gold. 
Each pair of earrings is unique. 

Made with hypoallergenic fishhook earring posts. The wings measure 2" long.

The Story:

I first began collecting cicada for use in my art. I would make tiny ornaments and collages featuring the wings as the focal point. But I wanted to create something that would really let the beauty of the wings shine, and that would allow me to enjoy that whimsy in my day to day life.

After a few months of testing different methods, I finally settled on a way that worked.

I’m happy to report that my method can consistently create sturdy, perfectly preserved cicada wings. The resulting cicada jewelry captures the sense of fairy tale whimsy I was dreaming of.

I work in small batches, creating about 6-7 pairs of earrings per batch. I then let them cure for about a month to make sure there are no problems with preservation. I then attach the earring posts and any additional charms, but usually keep it simple.

I am very happy with the cicada wing earrings that I create. They remind to look for wonder in the ordinary, and to create it when I do not find it. That fairy tales are more than stories, and that I am in charge of my own story. And that maybe that wing I found in the woods so long ago, really did come from a faerie.

No Cicadas were harmed for the making of these earrings.

The earrings will be packaged very carefully. They come in a little gift bag
