Handmade Ant Insect Necklace in Sterling Silver & Copper
Insect jewelry is such a thoughtful & unique gift for the bug lover in your life! This necklace is perfect for science teachers, gardeners, entomologists or entomology students -- any insect lover that can appreciate the tiny magic of ants.
This bold and distinctive ant necklace is the perfect way to add a little unexpected punch to a chic & easy outfit; perfect when paired with an oversized white tee and your favorite black skinny jeans, but looks just as amazing with a more classic & clean look, like a chambray shirtdress.
Sterling silver necklace featuring a sterling silver & copper pendant artfully etched with ants, busy at work. Necklace is finished with a hand-forged, easy-to-open and secure sterling silver clasp accented with hand-cut quartz beads.
This necklace was completely hand-crafted and assembled in the USA using good, old-fashioned silversmithing techniques! The pendant was carefully polished, the completed necklace was then hand patinated & then the whole thing was re-polished to give the copper back its gorgeous, bright copper glow.
Necklace chain length is customizable
Pendant height (from bail to base) is 1.75" (4.4 cm), pendant width is 7/16" (1.1 cm)
This necklace features a set of busy leaf cutter ants. Leaf cutter ants can deftly use their mandibles like tiny pairs of scissors, cutting manageable slices out of leaves & grasses. And just what do they do with all the clippings of leaves & grasses after they parade them back home, you ask? They feed their fungus gardens with them, of course!
