Carrie Bilbo


The cicadas here are in full swing and every night we are treated to a symphony of chirping from the trees above us. Our backyard is filled with their little brown shell casings; stuck to the tree bark, the fence, the table. I guess I've had them on my mind a bit lately and curiosity led me to do a random search for "cicada" on Etsy. Apparently I'm not the only one with a bit of fascination for the creatures! Long story short, that is how I happened upon the jewelry of Carrie Bilbo.

I'm sure I've said it here before, but I'm not much of a jewelry wearer. I've had the same little hoop earrings in for... ten years now? Every once in a while I'll throw on a simple necklace, but that's about it. But, Carrie's jewelry really struck a chord with me. I love its simplicity and the organic feel of each piece. Mostly I'm in love with that cicada wing necklace!

I don't tend to wear much jewellery either, but these are lovely. I miss the sounds of cicadas, here in London we just don't get 'em.

The cicadas are out in full force here in Pittsburgh as well. I'm not going to lie; those little buggers freak me out! But that necklace is so delicate and pretty. I wouldn't have guessed it was a cicada wing at first!
