Nature inspired Jaw Bone statement necklace
Handcrafted copper jewelry made by me at home in my studio from the finest raw materials that mother nature has to offer. Sustainably harvested and crafted into fashionable heirloom quality jewelry.
I adore this one of a kind statement necklace! I created this with what I think is a raccoon jaw bone. I placed various foliage and leaves around the jaw to make it feel like it is being reclaimed by nature. The small moth that I found worked perfectly in the spot where there were a few missing teeth and in some of those holes I added a few tiny diamond quartz crystals. I brought in a touch of green with a piece of Tourmaline and as a final touch I left part of the fang tooth exposed to bring in some contrast.
This piece was created through a process called electroforming and the whole thing is encased in copper. When the process is finished I take it and hand age it with a vintage patina to bring out all of the tiny details, then the copper is sealed to help preserve the finish.
Comes on a 20in antiqued copper chain with a lobster clasp.

Diamond Quartz Properties:
Herkimer Quartz "Diamonds" are the high energy seekers of the crystal world. Unusually transparent with a brilliant sparkle, they manifest pure, solid Light and are powerful amplifiers of spiritual energy. As perfect conduits of the universal Life Force, they are exceptional healing crystals, and are used in meditations, dream and vision work, and advanced spiritualization applications.
Herkimer Diamonds are the most powerful of all Quartz crystals. Being doubly terminated, they have the ability to not only transmit their own energies, but to receive spiritual energy and to amplify and focus it intently. They are reported to be harder than all other Quartz, giving them the strength and durability to handle difficult challenges beyond the scope of other Quartz crystals. What they lack in physical size, they more than make up for in spirit energy.
This mineral owes its name to Herkimer County, New York, USA, the principal place where it is found. The small, double-terminated crystals are short and stubby, formed in a hard rock matrix giving them their strength. They may be exceptionally clear and colorless, or contain rainbow inclusions, air bubbles, or black carbon deposits. A small percentage of these crystals contain enhydro inclusions of water. Some are smoky rather than clear, and similar-looking crystals have been found at other sites, but generally do not have the same hardness or high gloss of genuine Herkimer Diamonds.
