Based in Chicago, Alicia Goodwin launched Lingua Nigra (Latin for 'black tongue') soon after graduating from New York's Fashion Institute of Technology. She is inspired by nature with a focus on ancient talismans and Victorian era pieces. Using several techniques, most notable acid etching and metal reticulation, her work transforms during one of the final steps in her process; electroplating with 22kt gold. This long necklace features actual beetle wings in addition to carved wings carved in wax and cast in brass and then plated in 22kt gold for an extra awesome effect.
