Spirit Bison Fantasy Pendant With Tube Bail in Sterling Silver

148.00

A mystical bison peers out at his surroundings while magical energy swirls all around. No matter if bison, or buffalo, is your totem or spirit animal or if you just have an affinity for bison, this pendant is for you. The symbolism of the bison includes that of prayer and abundance. The bison is also a symbol of honoring your sacred path, that prayers are being heard, and that your efforts will gain rewards. The scrolls and swirls on the bison and in the background show the mystical nature of this spirit animal.

 The overall totem animal pendant size is 1 3/4 inches by 1 inch wide, the tube bail is 3/4 of an inch wide, the bison medallion is 1 inch round (a little larger than a quarter). The swirls in the background of the buffalo are echoed in the swirl tube bail or you may choose the log tube bail which is perfect for the woodland theme of the animal pendant. Both bails are the same width, accept a thick 4mm cord and are Pandora friendly. A dark patina has been applied to enhance the detail and give contrast to this magical piece of fantasy jewelry. The angled view of the woodland pendant shows the dimension of the piece.

 Want more options? I can also hang the buffalo medallion from a bail that has an 8mm stone accent, $178.00. Want to keep it simple? Then I can just attach a simple jump ring that a cord can fit through, $98.00. Please contact me if you are interested in either of these options.

 As with all of my work this piece of woodland jewelry is my original design was created using the lost wax method. I first start by doing a detailed drawing of my intended subject. Then I sculpt my design in wax. I start with overall shape and form, then adding detail such as facial features, fur and scrolls. After the wax sculpture is complete it is cast in sterling silver, excess metal is removed, rough polished, linked together, soldered, patina applied, then completed by a final polish and a coating of Renaissance Wax hand polished for a soft satin glow. It is a time consuming process, but one that I thoroughly enjoy. For more detailed information on my wax sculpting and casting process go to www.mystcswan.biz and look at the "Creation Process" and "Wax Sculpting" sections. The only purchased parts of this handmade fantasy necklace is the jump ring and leather cord.

 While visually they look vastly different, the inspiration for this collection of spirit and totem animals was born of my Frolicking Faerie Collection. I was so happy with the way the faeries looked dangling from the jump rings on the pendants and necklaces that I wanted to add spirit animals to the group. My obstacle with this idea was an aesthetical one; unlike faeries animals don't have hair to link with a jump ring, nor wings (with the exception of birds) and most don't hang from a leg. My solution was to design the animals on medallions which let me use an entire animal or just the head and also gave me room to include a bit of background. Before I discovered mystical realms I was fascinated with animals which were my main subject matter. This collection of spirit animals has given me the opportunity to rediscover that love and add a mystical element to it. I am thoroughly enjoying my reunion with the animals and plan to have between 30-40 different creatures available. There will also be necklace designs allowing a person to wear multiple totem animals at once. I hope my love for this work shines through in the spirit of the animals.

 Take the magical energy of this totem animal with you into everyday life.
