Silver wolf necklace. Wolf head pendant and chain with smoky quartz eyes.

Grey wolves (Canis lupus), are found in various guises throughout remote areas of the Northern Hemisphere. They have been an essential element in the folk law and literature of almost all cultures and ages. She-wolves are the epitome of maternal protection and feminine strength, they were particularly prevalent in Roman legend and also the title given to England’s war-like medieval queens.

The sterling silver wolf measures 3.5cm, or a little under one and a half inches long. It weighs approximately 27g (which is slightly under an ounce), or 39g including the solid silver chain, and has eyes made from rich, brown smoky quartz.
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 wolf 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 wolf has been hung from a sturdy 24 inch long chain with a substantial clasp. This pendant is supplied in its own gift box.
