Wolf Tooth Necklace by lupagreenwolf Wolf Tooth Necklace by lupagreenwolf

I have long enjoyed using organic materials in my artwork; this is one of my finest pieces of jewelry yet. The centerpiece is a real gray wolf canine tooth from Alaska, where limited hunting of wolves is still allowed. Most “wolf teeth” being sold today are actually coyote teeth; real wolf canines normally sell for $50 per pair or more, and average two inches in length (this one is nearly two and a half).

The tooth was damaged, split open, and the piece lost. However, this makes it a perfect perch for a real Tillandsia air plant. The pendant is further decorated with tendrils of vine-green and sand-brown wool yarn and gold cord, all secondhand; more of these cords are woven together with real peacock feather herls for the necklace itself. A gold charm, resembling a star or flower, provides an additional adornment.

Most of my works are found on my Etsy shop; this piece, however, may be directly purchased here on eBay. Last summer, Etsy banned the sale of a number of animal species, wolf included, but my eBay shop still contains several pieces made with wolf hide and bone, this necklace included.

This is beautiful. I'd be more than happy to give it a good home, but sadly I live in California. I love the incorporation of both the plant and animal kingdoms in the piece.
