Coyote Chain Necklace by Heliotrope
These rad coyote head pendants are cast from a hand-carved mold, crafted by local Tucson artist Heliotrope! Cast in brass or white bronze, with a bold 18" chain of gold or silver respectively. The slightly shorter chain length, and attachment to the pendant means this necklace fits a little more like a choker!
Brass pendant with gold chain.
White Bronze pendant with silver chain.
Spring Winders is the designer, metalsmith and entrepreneur behind Heliotrope. She founded Heliotrope in 2012 shortly after moving to Tucson, where she lives with her partner, poet and DJ Logan Phillips, and their twin daughters.
Spring is hugely inspired by the Sonoran desert. With its wild, survivalist creatures, its strange and beautiful plant life, stunning sunsets, and the incredible contrast between its vulnerability, and eternal strength, it provides both inspiration for her hand-carved casts, and material for the casts and earrings she creates using salvaged animal bones, insect wings, and owl talons.
