Slow motion cicada song, perhaps asking me not to eat him, or perhaps to attract a mate. The noise is created by the flexing of muscles connected to an organ called the tymbal. This noise hurts birds’ ears and also interferes with their communication making it hard for them to hunt in groups. That’s why you will hear many male cicadas singing at once - amplifying efforts to exist (and mate) in peace. The cicada has ear-like organs that they can close to keep out their own deafening noises. #cicada #cicadasong #tymbal (at Delaware County, Pennsylvania)
Depicting a cicada with the most exquisitely made wings in plique-à-jour (letting in daylight) enamel and calibre cut sapphires. The head and the body are set in diamonds and sapphires as well and the eyes are set with two cabochon cat’s eye crysoberyl.
Four unique geometric insect pin designs celebrate some beautiful bugs
in style! Originally part of my pattern “Insecta Geometrica,” all four
insects are now ready to stand out on their own as bright and
fashionable hard enamel pins. Wear one, a few, or all four to add
colorful accents to an outfit or bag, or add them to your personal pin
The complete collection of Insecta Geometrica pins features a green scarab beetle, a bumblebee, a green cicada, and a comet moth!
Each will be approximately 30mm in vibrant gold-plated hard enamel. These will be individually packaged on backing cards featuring the signature purple diamonds of the original pattern accented with spot gloss for a subtle finishing touch.
Pledge for one, pick your favorites, or back all four! All this project needs is you to become real!
Check out the campaign for more information on the pins. Please spread the word & thank
you so much!
