..  I spent hours watching videos and studying pictures of Rescued big cats at the Emoya Big Cat Sanctuary in South Africa.  Majestic yet wounded the lions magnificence & raw instinct lifted me up... To me they evoke a sense of peace and joy that pours out of their strength & power.  I did my best to capture their powerful attributes of courage, strength & fearlessness in my carving. I focused on their intense deep set eyes which in the rescued lions shows the hardships of their heavy pasts.  I hope you find my carving has captured the essence of the lion and brings it tremendous attributes to you as the wearer.  The word Courage is carved as an inscription on the back... for each of us to have the courage to live our life with the wisdom & spirit of a lion and be relentless in our fight to protect and help what we love. 

All my designs are carved initially out of a hard jewelers wax by hand.  Then cast in metal and molded.  Each piece thereafter is individually lost wax cast.  I then do the finishing work, oxidizing & polishing on each piece for you.  I attach bail so the medallion is easily attached to its chain .  Please choose Bronze or Sterling Silver from drop down menu.    Also please choose 16 or 18 inch or 20 inch chain.  Thank you!  please allow 3-4 weeks for lost wax casting & finishing work if out of stock.  I will do my best to get them out fast!  

 special note .  If you need shipping outside the US, Please choose the Outside the USA shipping selection for $14.
