Cactus Spine Silver Bar Necklace
Production Time: 1-3 days
This silver cactus spine necklace is a perfect embodiment of the minimalist beauty of the desert. The vertical bar is cast from the wide, ribbed cactus spine of a compass barrel cactus in a brilliant silver, creating a necklace that features the shapes and textures of the desert. Its point curls around a thin box chain, creating a lovely, minimalist bark necklace. It features the shapes and textures of the desert, which contrasts beautifully against the modern, silver finish. Both sides of the pendant retains the spine's texture.
Available in a range of sizes with spines up to 3" long, with the points up or down (see photo in bronze for spine-down design), and chains up to 32". The model is wearing a 22" chain and 2.75" spine. The backside of the pendant is stamped with my maker's mark and 925.
Also, please note that these are made from cactus spines, and, while I do file the points down, they should still be worn with some caution!
Eco-friendly, recycled, and shower/pool friendly solid sterling silver, stamped 925
Recycled metal, in this case, is gold and silver that has been reclaimed from jewelry that is at the end of its useful life OR from metal that is left over from the silversmithing process (everything from tiny silver dust to excess wire). Recycled metals reduce the impact of mining while preserving the quality of your jewelry. Recycled metal does not mean that it is inferior in any way - it's not plated, a lower karat quality, or hollow. Exactly the same, just cleaner and more ethical.
