Snow Leopard Necklace, Enamel Red Coral Handmade Wildlife Jewelry Gift

Item Description

The beauty of endangered snow leopards, which live at high altitudes in Central Asia and are considered sacred animals, is unmistakable:  a majestic large cat with black spots on white, perfectly camouflaged to live in the snow.  The beauty of the one of a kind SNOW LEOPARD necklace is also unmistakable!  Created with an artisan enamel snow leopard pendant, the eye-catching necklace also features rich red coral and glowing copper.  The unique, high gloss pendant started out as a round copper blank. Snow white glass powder was fused onto the front with a high heat butane torch.   A stencil and more enamel glass powder was used to form the close up face of the snow leopard:  black spots, intent green eyes and a bit of a red mouth.  As you can see, the detailing is absolutely amazing.  The back of the pendant is finished in black enamel.  A heavy duty copper jump ring fastens the snow leopard pendant securely to the main body of the necklace.  For more information about beautiful snow leopards, here’s a link: Snow Leopard Facts
 
To perfectly complement the snow leopard pendant, two shapes of red coral were used.  Three sets of three faceted red coral rounds are found at the front of the necklace.  Because this coral is faceted, a subtle sparkle is added to the design.  Between each set of faceted coral and to finish the necklace are natural shaped red coral tubes, each one a bit different from the other in size, shape and hue.  They are graduated in size from longer in the front to shorter in the back.  A small copper bead separates each piece.  The back of the unique necklace is securely finished with a copper s-clasp set with a raised dot design.  Carefully designed by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the gorgeous SNOW LEOPARD necklace is a perfect gift for the woman who adores big cats and loves wearing one of a kind artisan design jewelry.

Snow Leopards symbolize courage, intuition and creating good karma.  Red Coral is used to help calm life, to restore harmony in the event of an emotional conflict.  Copper is said to allow the wearer to recognize barriers in the path of personal development.
