Asherah IV - Welo Opal & Armored Coyote Jaw Charivari Necklace with Hand-Fabricated Chain
Inspired by the traditional Bavarian hunting relics of yore, this fierce statement piece was created as a protective totem for the wearer.
An incredibly fiery faceted Ethiopian Welo opal is the star of the show on this one-of-a-kind charivari necklace.
Set atop a genuine coyote jaw secured in a hand-fabricated sterling and fine silver setting, this high quality opal flashes mostly glittery greens and blues, but at certain angles displays red and yellow. Truly a phenomenal stone! It has been set into an extra tall stepped bezel in .999 fine silver.
The coyote jaw has been secured in a completely hand-fabricated armored setting featuring large hand-fabricated silver leaves on both sides. Each tooth has been secured in the jaw, and the canine tooth has been stabilized with a .999 fine silver band.
Entire pendant measures approximately 3.5 inches long and 1.25 inches at the widest point.
It hangs on a 25 inch sterling silver heavy-link completely handmade chain with 46 hand-forged and soldered decorative links that emphasize the pendant. Two of the links feature AAA grade Ethiopian welo opal cabs with brilliant rainbow fire.
Truly a one-of-a-kind statement piece!

As with all handmade and one-of-a-kind jewelry, utmost care should be taken to keep jewelry clean and dry. Never wear your pieces while bathing, swimming, or washing dishes to avoid having them submerged in water. Bones and stones are porous and susceptible to become weak when they get wet. Metals can tarnish and lose their patinas more quickly if they get wet or washed with chemicals frequently. Also, please remove your pieces before any strenuous activities as they are fragile and parts could be knocked loose or fall out. Treat your jewelry like the unique piece of art that it is and it will remain in good condition for ages.
