alligator scute necklace
Hi friend! This listing is for one hand made alligator scute necklace.
Are you looking for a surefire way to easily amplify any look?! Well then, this unique necklace is going to be the perfect addition to your line up. Whether you're at the office, running errands, or enjoying a night out, you can rely on this stunning babe to have you glowing! The best part is, it's made to last, so elevate your jewelry collection with confidence knowing it will be with you for years to come!
I start this beauty by coating the alligator scute with epoxy to ensure its durability. After letting the epoxy dry I drill a hole in the top of the scute and attach a jump ring to hang it from. Next I hand form each layer and the top hanger piece that they will hang from out of 16G brass wire. Once I have all of the brass layers formed I can go ahead and hang them all from the top hanger piece. All that's left to do now is add the chain and ta-da another BANGIN babe is born!
The pendant measures 2 inches long and 2 inches wide.
The chain is 20 inches long.
To keep your jewelry looking radiant for as long as possible try not to shower, swim, or sleep while wearing it. But no matter how well you treat your new treasures, it is still the nature of brass to tarnish, so all orders will come with an aftercare kit that includes a polishing cloth and polishing pad along with instructions on how to use them, so you can keep your babes shining!
*NO ANIMALS ARE EVER HARMED FOR THE MAKING OF MY JEWELRY*
I love all animals and my jewelry is a symbol of my appreciation for them and the lives they once lived. Most of the bones I use are hand collected by me or my loved ones from animals that are already dead. We find them in the woods, on railroad tracks, at the beach, and many other pockets of nature. The alligator scutes I use are one exception to this, I get them from a friend who found a bucket of them at a taxidermy shop that was going out of business.
