The Double Headed Alligator Bolo Tie
This listing is for a MADE TO ORDER bolo tie from the Southwestern Swamp Collection.
The pendant is a double headed alligator, based on the imagery from the Navajo Thunderbird. It was hand sawed out of nickel silver, and then hand textured to give it a more organic texture. A serrated fine silver bezel holds a glass stone showcasing a real snake shed, from a Ball Python. The back of the pendant has a hand formed bolo snugly holding a black leather braided cord. Then it was given a patina to give it a more antiqued appearance.
There is an American South superstition, that suggests, to dream of snakes brings bad luck. However, if you safely walk past snakes in your dream, you would overcome your enemies. This necklace will harness the lore of the snake, and allow you to overcome any obstacle that stands in your path.
DetailsThis necklace is MADE TO ORDER, and can be made in another metal if you would like, please specify when ordering.
The alligator pendant measures 4 1/2" across and 1" tall. The "snake shed stone" is 1" in size.
The bolo cord measures 36" long.
Because this piece is made to order, please allow up to 6 weeks for delivery. I strive to get custom order finished within a week, but if I need to order more metals, it may take as long as 6 weeks as it will be out of my control - I will let you know what I estimate, and if it is time sensitive feel free to ask ahead of time!
As a side note, due to the natural and delicate nature of the snake shed it is not recommended to wear this ring underwater. Without thinking I have worn mine swimming and it was set completely air tight and there were no issues, however it is always wise to not press ones luck and allow delicate and treasured pieces to receive only minimal time in the elements.
