This koala in a tree pendant is suspended from oxidized copper chain which is interspersed with components of oxidized copper beads, green bone discs and serpentine beads. I painted the pendant on a piece of bone and have signed and dated the back.

On a scale of one to ten on the cuteness scale, this little guy gets a ten. You will hear "oooohs" and "awwwws" every time you wear it. Who couldn't love a sweet little koala face? Their natural expression looks like they are smiling at a secret known only to them.

The vibrant greens in the pendant paired with the rich copper make this a great accessory for all seasons. If you live in the Northern Hemisphere and wear it in the winter, you're good to go, because that's when it's summer in Australia, home to the koala.

Native to Australia, koalas live in Eucalyptus trees, the leaves of which make up their diet. They derive most of their water from the leaves and the name "koala" is thought to mean "no drink" in several native Aboriginal tongues. Slow moving, they spend up to eighteen hours per day sleeping.

The necklace measures eighteen inches / 46 cm in length. The pendant is 1.75 inches / 4.4 cm tall and .75 inches / 1.9 cm wide. The pendant has received several coats of sealer to protect the paint and provide a glossy finish. The hook clasp and the spiral bail from which the pendant hangs were also hand crafted by me.

No matter where you live, this sweet little necklace will allow you to carry one of Australia's most beloved creatures with you anywhere you go!

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

I've always loved the koala and when a dear friend who lives in Australia sent me a koala Christmas card, I decided it was time to paint one of the little guys.
