Coconut shell and lava stone pendant necklace, 'Microraptor' (Guatemala)

With this necklace, Guatemalan artisans Fernando and David pay homage to the ancient dinosaurs. Within a circle of coconut shell, the image of a flying microraptor is carved by hand. The cutaway portions are filled with lava stone and resin for a striking contrast. This necklace adorns the wearer on an adjustable length of black nylon cord.
