Handmade Sterling Silver Praying Mantis Insect Necklace
This praying mantis necklace makes the perfect gift for the bug lover in your life. Perfect for science teachers, gardeners, entomologists or entomology students -- any insect lover who can admire the grace and beauty of the bold & inquisitive praying mantis.
Our certified eco friendly, recycled sterling silver necklace features the peculiarly elegant profile of a patient & watchful praying mantis. This clean & simple design makes for the perfect simple yet edgy go-to necklace!
This mantis necklace is made-to-order, so please allow 1-2 weeks to have one made just for you. It will be completely hand-crafted and assembled in the USA using good, old-fashioned silversmithing techniques! The completed necklace will be polished, hand patinated for an "antiqued" finish, then re-polished again.
Pendant is 7/8" (2.2 cm) high x 7/16" (1.1 cm) wide
Necklace chain as shown is 18" long, oxidized and finished with a secure and easy "fish hook" style clasp (see additional photos for clasp details.)
Praying mantises are probably the most recognizable among the Mantodea, one of the most beautiful and fascinating of the insect orders. Unfortunately made infamous by their penchant for cannibalism, they are fearless, curious, exquisite & wondrous creatures.
