  • the story

The Lovely Bones

The cactus is a survivor, living on little water and holding predators at bay with its spiny defenses. But on the inside, the cactus supports itself with a surprisingly intricate, lace-like framework of woven fibers.

Capture that essence of outer strength and inner beauty with this spirited necklace. The delicate, abstracted pendant is actually cast from a piece of Prickly Pear skeleton, carefully selected and trimmed to the perfect, appealing shape. Using the "lost wax" casting method, artisans then hand cast the pendant from recycled sterling silver. Handmade in Tucson, AZ.

    In these days of "use something once or twice and then throw it away," it's rare to find such a beautiful piece of handcrafted jewelry that you can see being part of your collection for years to come. The simple elegance of this necklace makes it a must-have.

        Comments about BOTANIC OPUNTIA PENDANT NECKLACE:

        I was attracted to this piece because of the unique design, and because it was actually cast from the interior of a prickly pear cactus. But I had no idea that it would be so refined and elegant. I now wear it with everything: from t-shirts to dresses!

          I have this necklace and love it. I just love the story that's behind it as it's made from the skeleton of a prickly pear cactus. It's truly unique and I've never seen anything like it before.

                  I would LOVE to own this along with the earrings. I always find that Lila Clare jewelry starts conversations about her work and how unique it is. Her pieces can really be dressed up or down. I'll debate whether or not I keep this one or give it away as a gift!
