You can now have a lovely gold pair of cicadas in earring form with these Magicicada earrings by Erica Weiner. Yes, the noisy summer insects you love to hate are now immortalized in polished brass.

The earrings are life-size replicas of actual cicadas with their bulging eyes and big wings. Although a little creepy, these Magicicada Earrings by Erica Weiner actually look quite good with summer outfits.

Implications - In the last few years, there has been an increased importance placed on originality and individuality. One of the best ways a company can distinguish itself when selling a common product is by unabashedly appealing to novelty through ridiculous or comedic designs. By bucking convention and focusing on the creation of a unique product, the company will attract interest from consumers seeking products that will differentiate their personal style from that of everyone else.
