Praying Mantis Brooch

400.00

This posable praying mantis brooch is entirely hand-fabricated in sterling silver. All of the insect wings and forelegs are hand-cut with a jeweler's saw and move on rivets. The eyes are natural lower grade emeralds with a pretty light-green color to mirror that of a green mantis.

The brooch clasps on an angle with a tension closure. It is important to hold the pin close to the closure and not the hinge when opening and closing to maintain the strength of the pin over the years.

Praying mantises' wings are rarely seen in nature, but are extremely beautiful. I made this brooch specifically to highlight that feature.

The sterling silver is oxidized and brushed to a rough, rustic finish.

SIZE & LENGTH:

The size is approximately 2 x 2.25 in. or 60 x 58 mm.
