The Alligator + Air Spear Necklace
These are the core necklaces from The Swamp collection.
These pieces have evolved from my classic “Sterling Spear Earrings” design, although they have been reborn in fine silver and made with the texture from an alligator that I've found as roadkill in Breaux Bridge, Louisiana many years ago, and saved for the day when I'd be able to honor him in metal/life. Each with a bail made of a sprig of bald cypress branch, and a ribbon of 24k gold strengthening their bonds. . This necklace has the symbol of the element AIR cut out from it, so you can see yourself in the element while wearing the piece. It hangs from a sterling sterling bar and link chain, with a lobster clasp and hand soldered jump rings, in your choice of length, 16/18/20". The pendants measure 1 1/2" from the top of the cypress bail to the bottom of the spear. My makers insignia added to the back so you know who handmade your nature talismans of growth, beauty and healed value.
