  • $25.00
    Unit price per 


Inspired by the rare Seychelles Black Parrot.
Large, oval silver & black checkerboard acrylic beads alternate between flat & curved like a wing in flight. Every food grade aluminum wire link is hand made. The fancy hand made S-clasp is hammered for that extra ou-la-la.  Necklace is 13 inches when around the neck.
 
Made from parrot safe* 14 gauge aluminum wire, stainless steel and an acrylic beads.  

All of my aluminum wire is pure food grade 1100 aluminum, which is parrot safe, food safe & safe on your skin. It won't tarnish, rust or mark your skin. Its a safer & more affordable alternative to sterling silver.

Did you know?
Companion parrots often die from heavy metal toxicity due to playing with their owner's jewelry.  It's known that costume jewelry can be high enough in lead & cadmium to be toxic to children, but in my research I discovered that even high quality jewelry components contain zinc, copper, lead & tin - all of which are toxic to parrots. Most jewelry components are brought in from China with no information sheets to check what is in the material. Even with 304 and 316 stainless steel parts!
I spent an entire year sourcing out 304 stainless steel and food grade aluminum made in north america with component breakdowns to confirm they are free from dangerous heavy metals to protect our flocks :)
