Description

This cave bear skull necklace is a highly detailed replica of a mighty species of bear that became extinct around 30,000 years ago. This magnificent animal was a whopper, larger than the largest Grizzly and Kodiak bears today, and every bit as magnanimous. Quite rightly, these behemoths are considered part of the dramatically named "Megafauna" family of prehistory, and their dominance at the time was matched only by their appetite - Cave Bears would have to plough through a colossal amount of greenery to keep their spirit alive. Scientists now believe it was their dependence on a vegetarian diet that led to their ultimate demise - there's a lot to be said for the occasional bacon sandwich.

The skull I used for reference was kindly loaned to me by a fossil collector in British Columbia's interior, where this animal once made its home. Every detail is replicated here, from the ridges on its molar teeth to the bone structures at the base of the skull where it once attached to the spinal cord. It hangs perfectly from a carefully considered hole carved into the top of the skull, and it does so with dramatic effect. A true Lost Apostle original.

The Cave Bear skull measures 1 1/4" from the back of the skull to the tip of its jaw, and just over 3/4" across its huge eye orbits. Completely hand carved, the skull is cast in the finest jewelers' white bronze, hand polished and then thickly plated in silver. I then age the skull to give it a great antique look and feel, which also brings out all the details on this great piece.

The bear skull 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).

In Native American mythology, the Bear represents the power of introspection - the search for the sweetness of truth. In hibernation, so lies inner-vison - the death of the illusion of physical reality and the awareness of the expansiveness of eternity beyond. What's more, in the Indian Hindu religion the cave itself symbolizes the cave of Brahma - which in turn is represented in human anatomy as the pineal gland in the center of the brain. The very same pineal gland that is more commonly referred to as The Third Eye.

The bear's got it going on.

Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
We accept payments by Credit card and Paypal. Paying by PayPal is super straight forward, and the checkout process here at Etsy will walk you through it. If you would like to pay by credit card, please follow the links to pay by PayPal, and then look for the Visa/Mastercard link on the left-hand side of the PayPal page to continue your payment with Credit Card. This will navigate you away from PayPal and allow you to complete the transaction using your credit card. Ideal if you do not have a PayPal account.

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!
