This delicate handmade sterling silver necklace is a tribute to the mythic white whale, Moby Dick. I have made the world's largest mammal into a small treasure you can wear against your chest.

"Methinks that what they call my shadow here on earth is my true substance. Methinks that in looking at things spiritual, we are too much like oysters observing the sun through the water, and thinking that thick water the thinnest of air." --Herman Melville, from Moby Dick

This necklace has the heirloom quality of an antique treasure--as if it could have been worn on the neck of Ishmael himself. I meticulously carved this tiny sperm whale in wax and cast it in sterling silver using the lost-wax casting method. I did my best to preserve the detail of the full-sized creature in this miniature scale. I then crafted a frame for the whale to emphasize its preciousness. The whale hangs from an 18 inch chain with handmade clasp (If you'd like a different length chain, like 16", let me know in the "Notes to Seller" when you check out). Beside the clasp, I have dangled a labradorite as stormy as the seas.

I make this necklace to order by hand in my Santa Cruz, California studio, using the highest quality materials and craftsmanship.

It will arrive beautifully packaged. If you'd like me to include a hand-written note for the recipient, just let me know what you'd like it to say in the "Notes to Seller" when you check out.

*This necklace is currently on back order, so please allow two to three weeks. If you need it faster, let me know and we can work something out! Thanks!*
