Leonine Hinged Lapis Lazuli Necklace

250.00

LEONINE: Presenting glaring lion faces, inspired by the curious countenances of not-quite-perfect lions found in ancient and medieval art. These solid sterling wide-eyed beasts were handmade using a process that ensures each one is unique. Some lions feature ‘scars’ and other distinguishing characteristics making them look battle-worn and seasoned.

This heavy-duty statement necklace features a substantial lapis lazuli ‘crystal’, that has been topped with a lion face in high relief, with the four cardinal points marked by large grains of sterling silver. The bail is hinged to allow the crystal to turn and reveal the lion’s face. The entire pendant measures 3.25 inches long, and hangs on a 21 inch long solid sterling, fully-adjustable 5.1 mm wide long-and-short style chain. The chain is attached to the pendant by two handmade ‘s’-hooks that clip onto the bail.

Care: As with all handmade and one-of-a-kind jewelry, utmost care should be taken to keep jewelry clean and dry. Never wear your pieces while bathing, swimming, or washing dishes to avoid having them submerged in water. Bones and stones are porous and susceptible to become weak when they get wet. Metals can tarnish and lose their patinas more quickly if they get wet or washed with chemicals frequently. Also, please remove your pieces before any strenuous activities as they are fragile and parts could be knocked loose or fall out. Treat your jewelry like the unique piece of art that it is and it will remain in good condition for ages.

Shipping and Policies: Please allow 1-3 weeks for the creation of your earrings before being shipped. Please read both my shipping and policies pages before making your purchase.
