Description: Blue green statement necklace featuring chrysocolla and a crab Length: 21.5" Materials: chrysocolla, brass crab, brass chain, gold plated large spring ring clasp Origin: Hand made in the USA at the Manic Trout studio in Austin, TX Inspired by: Dear To Me by Electric Guest This crab necklace featuring marvelous chrysocolla makes a delightful statement piece. Why wear crabs on your jewelry? Crab totems are a sign of protection as they remind us that we can wear our own protective armor when we need to. Crab traits are self sufficient, defensive, shy, sensitive, intuitive, tenacious and persevere. The crab in this necklace is a vintage design stamped from brass. I chose to use brass for the design to continue the vintage vibe and intend for the material to tarnish over time for this reason. If you prefer to have it shiny, simply use a metal polish on the animal only, following the instructions on the polish. Ships ready for gift giving. Each piece of jewelry is packaged in it's own cello bag with the Manic Trout logo. Every order arrives in a silver box with a black tulle bow and wrapped in black tissue sealed with a logo sticker.
