The Snow Leopard necklace is handmade with powder blue glass beads surrounded by Japanese white glass and gold coated beads. It celebrates another gorgeous, elegant cats, the Snow Leopard. The powder blue and white beads symbolise the cold snow and mountains where this wonderful leopard can be found. Combining with the gold we have sought to capture the essence of this graceful preditor. The necklace comes in three sizes - a choker (small), necklace (medium) and pendant (long) and each is available with three charms and, of course, the letters of the alphabet.
Personalising this beautiful piece with a friend's initials, as well as planting 10 Mangrove trees - every Snow Leopard plants 10 trees and comes with a planting certificate and gift card in a fabric bag - is a wonderful gift that gives back to the planet as well as being personalised and quite unique.
If you really want to splash out there is also the Snow Leopard Anklet!

- the Arctic Fox (18K gold filled)
- the Sea Star (18K gold plated)
- the Turquoise Coral (18K gold filled with turquoise inlay)
The Snow Leopard
The Snow Leopard is a solitary animal living at altitudes over 4,000 metres above sea level on steep cliffs and mountains where their habitats are under threat from Climate Change and global warming - they live in the snow and its disappearing!
Snow Leopards are built to live in freezing conditions - their fur grows up to 12 cms (5 inches) in length and their tails, which can be over a metre long, are designed like scarves to keep them warm as they nestle in the snow. Their feet are, of course, designed like snow shoes.
Measuring up to 5 feet in length and weighing up to 500 pounds, Snow Leopards are more closely related to Tigers than leopards. That said, they cannot roar and their meow is described at a high pitched piercing yow which can be heard for miles.
There are somewhere between 4,000 and 6,500 Snow Leopards left in the world and the combination of Climate Change and deforestation caused by agriculture are bringing these beautiful cats into ever greater contact with humans - and the rest is history! Snow Leopards are no match for man.
The Snow Leopard necklace is made by hand and made to order. The combinations of blue, white and gold Japanese beads are unique to each band although the style of each is the same.
