Lightning Bugs (aka fireflies) are one of my fondest summertime childhood memories. Seeing these little twinkling bugs flitting around in the night sky meant it was summer, I was up a little later than usual and I could catch this magic in a jar. I remember studying these little critters, watching the light up, and releasing them back into the sky. Pure childhood magic.
I tried to capture a little of that magic in this pendant. The little wings open to reveal a handmade glow-in-the dark rutilated quartz cabochon. When exposed to light, it charges up and will glow in the dark!
Measures about 1.25" long (including antennae) on a fixed chain. Sterling silver rolo chain can be clasped at 16" or 18"
*Please note the wings are delicate and though this was inspired by childhood nostalgia, may not be suitable in children hands!
