The Nopal cactus or 'Prickly Pear', as we know it in English, was the lifeblood of ancient cultures in Mexico and continues to be a popular food and nutritional plant in Mexican culture. Also, interestingly enough, it is the state plant of Texas. No wonder we are fascinated with the Nopal around here! This unique & elegant bronze Nopal pendant hangs on a 28" sterling silver chain with a tiny jade bead accent to finish off the necklace. Designed & completely handcrafted using age old tools in our East Austin studio. Pendant measures 1 1/4" x 3/8" antique bronze, sterling silver & jade
Claire Sommers Buck Jewelry is is hand produced from start to finish in our lovely (and sometimes messy) East Austin studio. We use traditional jewelry fabrication techniques and materials that are carefully sourced for their quality and genuineness. Inspired by Claire's love of ethnic jewelry, textiles and adornment from around the world, our pieces evoke the essence of ancient relics, but are clean and contemporary in their design. Although we do make multiples in the CSB jewelry line, each piece is slightly imperfect revealing their individuality and personal story. Thank you for stopping by and supporting handmade & local!
