Large Antique Brass Cicada Charms with Sterling Silver or Hypoallergenic Surgical Stainless Steel Ear Wires

$7.00


CICADAS
Cicadas have prominent eyes set wide apart, short antennae, and membranous front wings. They have an exceptionally loud song, produced not by stridulation but by vibrating drumlike tymbals rapidly. Most cicadas are cryptic, singing at night to avoid predators. The periodic cicadas spend most of their lives as underground nymphs, only emerging after 13 or 17 years, most likely to reduce losses by satiating their predators.

Cicadas have been featured in literature since the time of Homer's Iliad, and as motifs in art from the Chinese Shang dynasty. They have been used in myths and folklore to represent carefree living and immortality. Cicadas are eaten in various countries, including China where the nymphs are served deep-fried in Shandong cuisine.

Returns and exchange details

Items can be returned if buyer is not happy for any reason and contacts me within 14 days after receiving the item. Buyer to pay return shipping and had 7 more days to get it back to me or the possibility of returning it expires.

In the case of breakage or a lost item: Please pack up your item and mail it back. I will repair or exchange the item. If a fix or replacement are not acceptable a refund will be considered depending on the age of the item. If something just up's and breaks immediately or due to no fault of your own, I am very happy to correct the situation and I will replace the missing item with something of similar to higher value, especially if it's brand new. Of course, your refund will be done straight away but if you have had the earrings a while we need to work together to get the breakage straightened out, see below:

For example if you break your earrings and you love them and wear them all of the time and they are 2 years old... I only ask that you pay a couple of dollars to get them repaired by me than feel upset. I always take care of my customers... Sometimes I need the old earring for matching and sometimes I do not. Shipping from some areas is so expensive that sometimes I have to do it by looking at the picture of the old pair, and I hate doing it but we have to do what we have to do. In this case, buyer pays all shipping and small fee for replacement of the parts not to exceed their value.

Additional

Trade friendly, local pickup if possible.

I am wholesale interested. Wholesale orders would have to be lost wax castings rather than OOAK sea glass creations. With that being said, I can give better pricing if you decide to buy something in a bulk or have me make something that turns out to be a large order.
