Vintage Hand Carved Wooden Animal Necklace Safari Themed on a Braided Bead Rope

Bitchin Retro


This safari themed necklace is awesome on so many levels. Elephants with "trunks up" for good luck share the stage with cute lions that have 'lil smiles carved into their faces. Believed to be from the 1980's, this bib style necklace has beautiful beadwork - from the themed circular beads in a cheetah or leopard print to the  3-D braided bead rope. Add in the bright gold tone seed beads, and this feels like an updated animal themed necklace that would be perfect for any safari or zoo keepers costume during the Halloween season, and would be quite the statement necklace for the balance of the year. 

21" long with a barrel clasp.

Bitchin Retro Notes: This necklace is in excellent vintage condition, and has been thoroughly cleaned. Please see condition desriptions below.

Vintage jewelry is rarely perfect. We will do our best to note any obvious flaws, but flea bites, and small scratches are to be expected. Please view all photos with zoom to see characteristics of this listing, and note the measurements provided, as we do use a telephoto lens to show as much visual detail as we can. This may enhance both size perception and imperfections actually not visible without magnification, but allows you to see the quality of the piece. We would be happy to answer any questions, or provide additional photos.

Condition Descriptions:

Excellent = very little to no visible wear, though minimal flea bites/scratches may be seen thru a loupe.

Very Good = normal wear and tear typical for the age which can be seen up close, as well as flea bites/scratches seen thru a loupe.

Average = significant wear seen with and without a loupe. We will note specifics and provide photos. 

We want you to be happy with your purchase, and have provided information to highlight the features and any imperfections or vintage love on our pieces. We also share condition descriptions (and lots of pictures) so that you are aware of how we arrived at our opinion. If despite our best efforts we miss something, we will be happy to work with you. 

Give us an opportunity to make it right...because we will.
