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.
