BroodX cicada lesser wing stud earrings

$27.20 $32.00

All items are handmade and are one of a kind from foraged wild and domesticated plants. I collect whatever is in season on my daily walks, usually in the Philadelphia area. The composition of my pieces range from traditional (using whole, pressed flowers and leaves) to more abstract. Each piece involves laying jewelry-grade resin in several layers, over several sittings.

All handmade jewelry will have natural imperfections, and thats what gives each piece their alluring details, originality and soulful nature. Variations and "imperfections" are not unwelcome.

37mm long half moon stud earrings, pearl backed, overlaid with BroodX cicada lesser wings (i.e. the back wings, used for steering) and finished with stainless steel posts and silicone backs. Nickel and lead free; cruelty free. Ethically foraged from naturally deceased specimens, most of which were already half-eaten by birds and other wildlife, in Haverford, Pa, in June 2021.

BroodX 2021 were actually three species of periodical cicada with 17 year lifecycles. They spent almost their entire lives underground, suckling on the roots of large, mature trees. They only live as adults for about 3 weeks. These wings are red/orange and smaller than the annual cicada species, and are easily distinguishable. Special.
