Rattlesnake Rattle

My dad's nickname from childhood to his death was K Bo. I just adjusted the spelling a bit and named my jewelry after him.

He collected many things; including rattlesnake rattles that he acquired during his many years in the forest  I chose this particular one for it's gorgeous curve. We made a mold from it and cast it in bronze. The result is this lovely, strong bronze casting on a sterling silver chain with a matte, patina finish. The ends of the chain are accented with small, faceted brass beads, hand-wrapped on sterling silver wire.

Length of chain: approx. 17"         Length of pendant: approx.
