Inspired by a customer request, this pendant is a hand molded, smaller version of one of my original cicada pendants, which are created using Precious Metal Clay and real cicadas I find locally after their life cycle has naturally ended. The back of the insect's body is concave, and the process allows me to offer the pendant for a lower price, while still enjoying the ability to make each one by hand from start to finish.
* Please note that these images show a sold necklace. Yours will look very similar, but as each is made by hand, minor differences can be expected.
