The Double Headed Alligator Bolo Tie (OOAK)
This listing is for a ONE OF A KIND Double Headed Alligator bolo tie set with Spanish Moss.
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 real bits of Spanish Moss collected from a Live Oak. The back of the pendant has a hand formed bolo snugly holding a black leather braided cord. The ends of the cord were capped off with two spent 22 shells. Then it was given a patina to give it a more antiqued appearance.
DetailsThe alligator pendant measures 4 1/2" across and 1" tall. The "spanish moss stone" is 1" in size.
The bolo cord measures 36" long.
As a side note, due to the natural and delicate nature of moss 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.
