While checking this seller's shop after purchasing a raccoon pendant I saw this unique ivy necklace. Look at the intricate workwomanship skills on this piece. Amazing & detailed designed with exacting labor! It's hard to put into words how wonderful a necklace it is. I know it will receive many compliments as buyers won't find this type of excellence elsewhere! With topnotch customer service including a beautiful jewelry pouch & a special jewelry box, it doesn't get any better for the buyer with this seller!

What a talented artistic seller. Perusing the listings for raccoon I came across this magnificent pendant. To think it was designed from brass bullet casings gleaned from a national park is remarkable. It is not a small pendant & has considerable weight to it. A gorgeous handmade special piece of jewelry!
