Electroformed Real Cicada Necklace
A real cicada (Ambragaeana ambra) encased in copper. Sits perfectly in the collarbone on a dainty chain.
One is silver plated and then patinated, and comes on a rhodium plated silver chain. Since silver plating isn't permanent, this one is sealed with a metal sealer to help this finish last longer.
The other is a very dark, almost black/gunmetal, copper and comes with a 100% copper chain. This one is left unsealed and the patina and the copper will change with wear over time.
Photo of necklace being worn is a cicada of a different species, and is only modeled for size/fit, and is no longer available.
