Solid sterling silver lynx head pendant with peridot eyes and a solid silver chain.

The elusive, secretive lynx can be found living deep in the most remote wildernesses of Europe, Northern Asia and North America. Unsurprisingly, this powerful and mysterious creature has a prominent role in Celtic, Slavic, Norse, and North American folklore and is known in some Native American traditions as the 'keeper of secrets'. The lynx also has a mythical reputation for seeing through falsehood and discovering the truth. This is thought to have inspired the “Academy of Lynxes", one of the world's oldest scientific societies.

This sterling silver lynx measures 3.7cm, or a little under one and a half inches long. It weighs approximately 40g (which is slightly less than one and half ounces), or 52g including the solid silver chain, and has eyes made from natural peridot. It was hand carved from wax which had a mould taken from it. It was then cast in solid silver and given a hallmark by the assay office.
To emphasize the details of the carving, the silver lynx was given an antique appearance by oxidising and then satin finishing the pendant. The whole piece was then coated with a layer of clear lacquer to help preserve the colouration. The silver lynx has been hung from a sturdy 24 inch long chain with a substantial clasp. This pendant is supplied in its own gift box.
