"Do you know the legend about cicadas? They say they are the souls of poets who cannot keep quiet because, when they were alive they never wrote the poems they wanted to"
- John Berger

In numerous cultures the cicada is a sacred animal. They are a symbol of resurrection and rebirth! When I gaze on her she she just makes me smile and feel a calming sigh!! So wonderful! Bess would be a great inspirational piece or a luck charm for you or a loved one! The name Bess means "Brings Joy!"
Bess was new for the Spring 2015 collection and comes in many metal finish combinations!! If you know me at all by now, you are well aware of my OCD craving to mix metals and finishes to allow my kids to build themselves with absolutely no boundaries!! I used an antique gold cicada/beetle base and set her free with the verdigris patina angel wings. (The patina finish will vary, that's just the nature of it, some will show more copper than others) She lifted her shoulder so cute and coy, arched her back and welcomed the copper plated rose that plays hostess to a 9mm. The spectacular Crystal Luminous Green Swarovski Crystal set into her primer pocket is such a pleaser!! This crystal chaton is a delight in any light! She hangs upon a 24" antique copper chain. Note that I turned the 9mm (headstamps vary) so when you look down to admire her it smiles back up at you! ;) Bess is made to order so if you have requests, please convo me before purchase ;)
Growing up in the southwest Missouri woods, in the heat of summer the song of the cicada would be truly deafening!!! ... all those unrealized poems....le sigh!
Pendant length: 1.25"x 3.15"
