Botanic Opuntia Med Framed Lily sterling necklace
This handmade botanical pendant was inspired by the desert and cast from actual skeletons of Prickly Pear cacti (skeleton closeup shown). Using the lost wax casting process, each piece starts with a carefully selected section of Prickly Pear skeleton, which is then hand cast using recycled sterling silver. The cast piece is then framed with sterling silver wire.
The lily pendant measures 3/4" wide and 1" long. Sterling silver chain and clasp; chain is 16" long with a 2" extender.
