Mapache - Raccoon Snout & Welo Opal Charivari Necklace

385.00

Inspired by Bavarian charivari: heirloom hunting trophies that were collected on watch chains and traditionally adorned the front of lederhosen. These amulets were treasured family objects, the chains were added to and passed down over generations. The pieces in this new collection utilize relics, stones, and coins long held in my personal archives, now ready to be passed to you.

  • Raccoon snout, collected from scavenged find.

  • Snout has beet set in fine silver, and the nasal cavity has been covered with a filagree plate.

  • Ornate bail featuring a rose cut Ethiopian Welo opal.

  • 24 inch sterling silver long and short link chain, full adjustable, closes with a lobster clasp and signature star charm.

  • Back has been stamped with .925 sterling and my maker's mark.

  • Materials: .925 sterling silver, .999 fine silver, raccoon snout, welo opal.

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: This item is ready to ship. Please allow 1-3 days while your payment clears before being shipped. Please read both my shipping and policies pages before making your purchase.
