This sculptural necklace takes its formal inspiration from the seed-pod of a Southwestern plant referred to as the Devil's Claw.  We periodically find it in our backyard - its claw shape is designed to be picked up by the hooves and feet of passing animals and carried long distances. The plant has been widely cultivated for centuries and became a favorite source material for basket weaving.  

 

3” long, 3" wide and 1 1/2" deep.

Adjustable 24” leather cord, copper ends.

Made of sustainable vegan leather.
