This is truly one of my all time favorite pieces. It is incredibly dramatic, yet very comfortable due to the way the cicada's wings curve. The moonstone has a magnificent play of color. It is very clear with a predominantly cobalt colored flash that evolves into shades of turquoise and periwinkle. People always notice this ring: it spreads magic wherever it goes.
I have always wanted to create insect inspired jewelry. I came upon some beautiful, modern, brass stampings of insects which I purchased and took home to study. As I started to look at them I began redesigning and altering them. In the case of this little creature I took away quite a few of its original elements and added a few of my own. For the motif on the wings I was inspired by the idea of the cicada flying through a veil of smoke. This is very much an hommage to Art Nouveau.
