Let's talk for a second about the pangolin. The pangolin is a cousin to the armadillo but, instead of plates, it has scales! They are not very well known but, they are the world's most trafficked animal. I made this necklace to create awareness for this beautiful creature and raise money to help them. That's why 20% of the proceeds from this necklace goes towards the pangolin program from the Wildlife Conservation Network.
This necklace is made from copper and then enameled with opaque white enamel. I then hand paint the pangolin and it's surroundings with watercolor enamel. This is then hung from a sterling silver 20" chain and bail.
