Description

Popularized by the movie Silence of the Lambs, and loved by entomologists the world over, the Death's Head Moth has won fame for its ominous skull like pattern on its thorax. This brooch is an ode to this beautiful and haunting insect. Hand carved mother of pearl moth serves as the base for this radiant piece, a silver plated skull adorns the thorax, and it's all finished with a brass pin. The almost magical seeming color changing nature of the mother of pearl seems a perfect match to this other worldly insect. Only 16 of these were made, so if you're looking for a one of a kind brooch with haunting distinction, this is your piece.

Due to the varied nature of mother of pearl, all brooches exhibit color variations and will change color under different lighting conditions as seen in the different pictures.

-Mother of Pearl
-Silver
-Brass
-Nickle free, lead compliant

Your lovely piece will come with a decorative gift box and a message from Dr. Diana about the unique flower that inspired your piece :).

Made with love in the USA of imported and domestic parts.

Please note, mother of pearl exhibit natural variation, and as such every piece will differ slightly.

Flat rate shipping of $5.95 within the USA, and $13.50 for international.
