Fireflies or lightning bugs 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 them light up, and releasing them back into the night. Pure childhood magic.

I tried to capture a little of that magic in this pendant.  The little wings open to reveal a vintage Uranium glass bead.  When exposed to black light*, it glows!   (Worried about Uranium glass?  No need!  This article will give you additional information about this fascinating material!)

Measures about 1.25" long (including antennae) on a fixed chain. Sterling silver rolo chain can be clasped at 16" or 18" *Black light flashlight included!

Please note the wings are delicate and though this was inspired by childhood nostalgia, may not be suitable in children hands!
