PRODUCT: Beetle Wing Earrings
MADE: Chicago
SIZE: Approx. 3" long
MATERIALS: Brass casting, 22kt gold plate, plated sterling post
DESIGNER: Alicia Goodwin
Hand carved wings in wax, then cast in brass to create a fun play on man-made versus nature. The metal wings are plated with 22kt gold, whereas the beetle wings are only trimmed and pierced, nothing more. This all hangs from a reticulated disc post earring, for ease of wear. Truly a dramatic and breathtaking piece to own and wear.

Lingua Nigra is the jewelry brand of Chicago-born designer Alicia Goodwin. Goodwin has been creating jewelry since childhood, but it wasn’t until she was earning her degree at The State University of New York Fashion Institute of Technology that she realized that creating impactful work in metal was her true calling. During her 18 years of living in New York City, Alicia worked for many talented small designers and also larger jewelry brands, all the while adding work to her own unique line of jewelry. Goodwin’s handcrafted work, which is made of brass, silver and gold, is inspired by nature, with a focus on ancient talismans, Victorian era work and mourning sentimental jewelry.

Handcrafted in Chicago.
