This listing is for ONE brass cicada pendant necklace. Photos are only an example of what finished pieces can look like. Because this is a natural patina process their is a wide variety of colors these could end up. From green to blue to rust to black. Usually end up with a combination of 2 or more of those.

The people of Provence, France consider cicadas to be good luck. This is my version of a lucky cicada talisman. Each pendant is one of a kind because the patina varies slightly in color from piece to piece.

Every batch of these that I create looks slightly different as I patina the brass cicada using natural ingredients rather than a chemical based patina paint. Antique brass chain on necklace is 24 inches long with no clasp. Is should easily slip over your head. But if for some reason you think you need a clasp please let me know. The cicada is 2" by 1.25" including the legs. Cicada is NOT solid heavy brass, it is very lightweight. Photos with skeleton keys are for reference. You will NOT get the key version.


**** I was the first person to make these cicada necklaces in this style. That lasted for years, but now there are lots of copycats emerging. I'm still the only one making these with natural non-chemical ingredients though. That's why each one looks like no other. Unlike chemically altered ones that look mass produced because those chemicals offer little personalized variation in the process.

CARE INFO - This pendant is meant to be cared for as any other art piece. Keeping it away from water will prolong the life. It will continue to patina naturally over the years. Do not clean or polish it as it can destroy the finish.

This creation is of my own design and I have never seen anything similar.**** To the best of my knowledge this is an original design. Respect your fellow struggling artist and please DO NOT COPY. © Jana Miller/Bone Lust 2013
