Cicada wings that I frequently use in my creations are from the “Magicicada” Brood II in Spring 2013! This periodical cicada only emerges every 17 years! Hand harvested from the grass & ground in Nyack, NY. No cicadas were harmed, cruelty free. In ancient times, Cicadas represented “rebirth”. Cicada wings are anti-bacterial, scientists have found spikes on their wings that kill bacterial cells!
