Bat Sleeping in his Coffin Home Necklace

I think bats are pretty misunderstood. For some reason they have been brought about to make people scared, are depicted as evil little beings, and that is all wrong. Have you ever seen a baby bat? They are the cutest! They liked to be wrapped up tightly like human babies, nuzzle their mommas, and hold onto her for dear life because there is nothing on earth they love more. Bats are very important for pollinating flowers and foods. Did you know this? Bats are pollinators! They also help us with mosquito control and have the cutest ears. Both very important, right?

I created this piece entirely from my sterling silver scrap pieces. I crafted the tiny casket for the bat to live in by rolling out melted silver scraps, sawing, filing, and then fusing it into shape. On the edges of each corner of the coffin I added tiny ball detail to make his home a little more special for him. The little bat was created by melting and manipulating the metal until his basic form showed and then carving and etching him until he was perfect! He has eyes and a mouth, two big fluffy ears, a fuzzy body, as well as two tiny feet clinging to the top of his coffin home. Both wings are wrapped around him tightly while he takes a little snooze. His coffin home is hanging from a silver tree branch under the light of the full moon. The moon was hammered and shaped to replicate the craters, nooks, valleys, peaks, and speckled surface of our moon.

This is the perfect necklace to wear when you want something a little bit spooky for the season but also a little bit cute.

This one of a kind pendant will come to you on an 18 inch long sterling silver necklace to keep it safe. The pendant itself measures 3 inches long and is about 1.5 inches wide.

Each of my pieces comes to you in a sweetly decorated gift box making them ready to be given as a gift, or as a nice gift for yourself! One of a kind finished pieces will be mailed to you within 3-5 business days.
