The Diamondback

Regular price $125.00

"The eastern diamondback rattlesnake is the largest venomous snake in North America. Feared as deadly and aggressive, diamondbacks are actually highly averse to human contact and only attack in defense. Most bites occur when humans taunt or try to capture or kill a rattlesnake. When cornered, rattlers feverishly shake their iconic tails as a last warning to back off. Rattles are made of loosely attached, hard, hollow segments. Snakes add a new rattle segment each time they shed."

This pendant necklace is life-cast from a genuine rattlesnake tail in sterling silver, then expertly plated in a thick layer of 14k gold to create what is called "gold vermeil". Luxe weight and feel.  A new spin on one of the very first Ax+Apple designs ever offered.  Chain seamlessly slides though the top rattle segment.
