This large two sided simple pendant has special meaning to me. Once I saw the beautiful traditional Hawaiian carved pattern on fish bone in Maui I knew I needed to do something with it. The woman who did the carving, indicated fish bone jewelry was traditionally given and placed over over a loved ones head before heading out to fish at sea to help keep them safe.
I have taken an impression of the carved fish bone onto silver for one side and carved another Hawaiian cross pattern on the other for two different looks. Originally intended as a man's necklace, I made the pendant very thick for a masculine look, and used a 5mm braided leather cord......But I really like the way it looks on the gals too!
The leather ends are capped with beautifully detailed ends and lobster type clasp, all sterling silver.
The leather has a natural curved appearance, it should sit at the base of the neck. It is meant to wear fairly short.
I'm wearing the 18 inch length in the photo. (I have a small to medium size neck.) :)
Men would most likely need to select the 19 or 20 inch size.
See the smaller version for women. Would be perfect for his/hers gift.
