Snowflake Obsidian Electroformed Cicada Pendant | Tinklet Jewelry
We love statement pieces that get noticed when you make an entrance. This electroformed pendant will surely spark curiosity and start conversations. It is a cicada, preserved in copper. Its wings are spread, and all the beautiful, intricate details are captured through this process.
These gorgeous, oddities of nature are created from a real specimen. It was not cast from a mold but a gorgeous Cryptotympana Aquila. This species is found in Thailand and Indonesia. In their natural habitat, these cicadas have black wings and are clear along the edges
In the center, is a stunning Snowflake Obsidian. This stone is a natural volcanic glass that contains Cristobalite in the form of a white “snowflake”. It is said that this stone brings balance, purification, and transformation. It’s a calming and soothing stone.
The chain is crafted from 18-gauge copper wire. Each link is meticulously twisted and formed. This chain is about 18 inches long. The pendant, when measured from the wingspan, is about 4 inches wide. When worn, it rests just above the breastbone for everyone to see and admire.
The plating is strong, solid but it should be treated with care just like any other fine piece of jewelry. We recommend that you remove your jewelry before sleeping, bathing, exercising, or cleaning. Store in a safe and dry place. The pendant and necklace are sealed with renaissance wax, but over time will darken as copper tends to do. To prolong the aging, keep stored in a Ziplock bag.
It’s bold and dramatic. You can coordinate it with any ensemble from business casual to everyday wear for a look that will turn heads; it’s a conversation starter.
All items arrive in a cute little black box or satchel ready for gift giving.
