Hedgehog necklace silver

Regular price £37.00 Sale

A beautiful recycled silver hedgehog pendant necklace. The hedgehog is drawn and sawn by hand. The pendant is handmade from scratch using eco friendly silver wire and sheet, then filed and sanded to make it smooth. I have engraved the fur, prickles and face, which are then oxidised to show off the textures and give a Beatrix Potter feel. Finally it is polished to leave a silver shine and finished with a protective coating to prevent tarnish.

This hedgehog pendant is lightweight to wear and measures 2 cm (0.78") in width and 1.5 cm (0.59") in height. It comes with a recycled 18" sterling silver trace chain. If you would prefer a different chain or length please don't hesitate to Contact Us.

The western European hedgehog (Erinaceus europaeus) is one of 17 species worldwide and are Britain's only spiny mammal. They eat mainly invertebrates as well as some fruits and mushrooms. They can be found in rural and urban habitats but due to the decrease in habitat the rural populations are in decline.

This item is presented in a recycled pillow box and ribbon with an anti-tarnish tab and care instructions. You can choose a gift box from the drop down list. It would make the perfect gift for those who love wildlife or animal themed jewellery.
