My Raven Talon may be the smallest of the three talons I have in the shop, but it's big in style. Cast from a real raven talon found on British Columbia's Sunshine Coast, this beautiful pendant replicates Nature's original in every tiny detail.

I've combined this with a blood red garnet, skillfully wrapped in sterling silver wire and oxidized to give it a dark, edgy vibe.

Together, they look absolutely fantastic.

Cast in solid white bronze, my raven talon has a great size and truly authentic feel to it - wearing it, it's easy to imagine the stunning landscape in which this bird of prey makes its home. My wife designed the spiral motif which is carved into all our talons and claws, and it really gives the piece a uniqueness and resonance of its own - I love the synchronicity of her design with the talon. The piece is completely reversible, and can be worn so the spiral can be kept as your secret.

Hanging next to the talon, a beautiful, micro-faceted garnet, skillfully wrapped in oxidized sterling silver wire.

The talon comes on your choice of chain or leather - all leather necklaces are adjustable and come with our signature Lost Apostle clasp (shown in the last photo).

My raven talon is cast in the finest white bronze and polished and finished entirely by hand. The talon is then plated thickly in silver, which prevents the piece fro tarnishing and gives it an amazing shine. It measures 1 1/4" from the top to the tip and, being cast from solid white bronze, has a fantastic weight and feel to it.

This is a collaboration between myself and the craftsmanship of Sara who made the lovely wire wrapped garnet. You can find many more examples of her beautiful work in her Etsy shop - www.etsy.com/shop/salemplus2.


My wife and I went for a hike the other weekend to the top of Mt. Daniel on British Columbia's Sunshine Coast. It's a beautiful walk amongst ancient Douglas Firs and towering Red Cedars and, at the top, a plateau of granite spreads out like a viewing platform, crowned with iridescent Arbutus trees and 360 degree views. It's truly one of the world's most beautiful places.

As we sat there, 11 huge ravens swooped out of the trees below us and soared just meters in front of us on our vantage point half a kilometre up in the sky. Their wings whistled as they flew by, corkscrewing up hundreds of meters above us only to spiral down back to earth in a matter of seconds. For half an hour we watched as these incredibly intelligent birds put on a display I hope I'll remember for the rest of my life. I always knew these birds were intelligent but I'd never heard the full extent of their language until that day - the silent sky around us was punctuated only by their communication, a staggering assortment of croaks, hums, clicks and whistles.

I've seen dolphins in the ocean and heard their singing. The song of the Raven is every bit as beautiful.

Returns & exchanges

If you're not 100% happy with your purchase, return it (unworn and undamaged please - worn or damaged jewelry will void the refund) within 10 days and we'll give you a full and complete refund (sorry, this doesn't include shipping) or a replacement if you'd rather. It's just the three of us here, you'll be dealing with real humans, and we'll do everything we can to ensure your complete satisfaction.

We cannot refund custom-made orders sadly. If ordering a custom-made ring please ensure that you have your finger accurately sized by a jeweler to ensure a great fit.

Shipping policies

As soon as payment is received we'll ship your purchase within 24 hours (occasionally - over national holidays and situations beyond our control - it may take a little longer), anywhere in the world. Anywhere? Anywhere. We will send your jewelry by Canada Post's very efficient First Class Airmail, but please remember that delivery times can, and no doubt will, vary. Please also note that Canada Post does not provide a tracking number with their First Class Airmail service. Once it's in the postman's hands, it's out of ours, and so please allow up to 28 business days for international delivery (that's what Canada Post says anyway). It rarely takes that long but it's good to know.

If you can't wait to get your hands on your new jewelry and would like us to send it by Expedited mail, courier service or any other speedier methods, please convo me (or send me a message through the "contact" button on my shop page) and I'll be happy to help.

International customers also please note that we cannot be responsible for any boring customs hold-ups or import taxes dumped on the shipment. I'm afraid I can't misrepresent the value of the package either. Thanks for understanding.

We always love hearing from customers once they have received their jewelry, so please get in touch and let us know it's arrived safely and what your thoughts are. I'm used to working behind a market stall and so I love the feedback!
