Each of the beads on this necklace is either a hand drilled and polished cougar toe bone with a waxed surface, or a hand polished bead cut from a cougar toe bone. The two center pendants are sterling silver stamped with "cougar" on one tag and "mountain lion" on the other.

This necklace was inspired by a book I read called "Listening to Cougar", a collection of essays about one of my favorite animals. The bones were purchased from Moscow Hide and Fur, well known for being a legal source of animal parts. Cougar bones are leftovers from the hunting of mountain lions for fur, and are not trophies. I hope that by making pieces like this I can create something for those who feel a connection to these lovely cats. I also hope to inspire others to see beauty even in objects not usually classified as valuable in the financial sense of the word.

This is a very short choker, only about 16" long, but it can be lengthened with a piece of chain in the back at a buyer's request. Due to this piece containing animal bones, it is for sale within the United States only.
