Maine Coon Cat Sketch Pendant Necklace
The Maine Coon cat from which this sketch is made is a cat named Fudge from Scotland, photo by Ben Plouviez.
This pendant emulates Scrimshaw which is made by carving and engraving the bones and teeth of whales. No animal died in the making of these pendants. They are not real scrimshaw they just look a bit like it. The stones for this pendant are white, flat, oval dolomite gemstones. The Maine Coon Cat picture is a sketch in black and white for the silver trim and sepia tone for the gold. The stones are slightly translucent and sometimes have little twinkles that show through uncovered areas when tilted in the sunlight. Your pendant may have a somewhat leaded glass appearance when you hold it up to the light.
The gemstone is a flat bead with a built-in bail at the top. You may choose between gold plate/brass and silver plated/nickel metals, on a small, medium or large stone.
Pick a bead/bar chain (left), cable chain (center) or a rubber cord (right) and preferred length. Your pendant is made just for you after you order with your specifications. This means you are getting a custom piece, so please use care when making your selections.
The stones are hand cut and each is a tiny bit different with occasional specks, crackles and swirls, sizes are approximately as follows:
Large pendant gemstone measures 1 1/2" high by 1 1/8" wide (40mmX30mm).
Medium pendant gemstone measures 1 3/8 " high by 1 1/8" wide (35mmX25mm).
Small pendant gemstone measures 1 1/4" high by 1" wide(30mmX24mm).
All chains and ropes have a lobster claw fastener. Select chain size and type.

To personalize your piece with inspiration you may opt to have complementary text on the back but it is not required. The rope and chain have a quality lobster claw fastener with the plated metal of your choice.
