This necklace has a section of wild boar tooth, that I found in my years of swamp exploring, set in a fine silver bezel. 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 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.
