A koala clings to a tree in this beautiful pendant. The form of the koala is so precious, their fur gives them a roundness that is captured perfectly in this necklace. The plump body is polished to a high shine, allowing it to sparkle and catch the light, whilst its large ears are textured to show the long fur that they have here.
Koalas are endemic to Australia, living in eucalyptus woods, and sleep up to twenty hours a day. Often depicted hugging trees, they may be doing this in order to cool down from the Australian heat – using the tree as a heat sink. The pendant makes the perfect gift for a koala lover, or perhaps someone who reminds you of a sleepy koala!
The design is carved by hand and cast sustainably in recycled sterling silver, hanging on a fine 18 inch chain.
With every purchase, we protect trees in the rainforest in order to help combat climate change and species loss.
Designs are all carved by hand in Cornwall by Rosalind, before being cast in recycled precious metals. Each piece is then finished individually in order to create beautiful, animal inspired pieces that represent a true realistic likeness of our favourite creatures from around the countryside.
Precious metals can last a lifetime if treated correctly. Be sure to take off your jewellery when showering, and keep it away from lotions and potions. When you’re not wearing it, store it in the box for safe keeping, and to prevent tarnishing. A wipe with a polishing cloth can do wonders, but a light hand is recommended for plated items. I also offer a re-plating service, so please get in touch for more details.
Plated items come with ‘gold filled’ chains, which is a much thicker plating of gold – so it lasts longer – over a base metal chain. If you would prefer gold vermeil, which is gold plated sterling silver, please just ask.
