Each cactus piece is handmade using a lost wax casting process. First, I carefully select a section of prickly pear cactus skeleton. That skeleton is molded, then silver or gold is poured into the mold. The result is a solid metal replica of the cactus skeleton, which is then made into a piece of desert-inspired jewelry. Each eco-friendly piece uses 100% recycled sterling silver and gold.
Hi, I'm Clare, owner and maker of Lila Clare Jewelry. I make each piece of jewelry from the actual dried fibrous skeleton of the prickly pear cactus, resulting in artisan jewelry made in and from the southwestern desert. I have been making these unique jewelry pieces from the cactus skeleton since 2010.
The Heart Shaped necklace was perfect, it goes great with the collection we have bought from you. Thanks for everything!!!!!
Thank YOU Jason!!
First saw Clare’s jewelry at a festival in Tucson and have now bought multiple pieces for my wife online. Just got the special edition heart necklace for valentines. You never go wrong (as a husband) with jewelry from Lila clare.
Thank you Dean! I appreciate you and am so happy to keep making jewelry for your wife.
Beautiful as usual
Thank you Jim! :)
I absolutely love the heart necklace. Just the right size to be worn alone or w another necklace. Perfect as all the jewelry Clare makes!
Thank you Sue! I love that you love it! ;)
I live all of my Lila Clare pieces! I’ve been buying one every year for a few years now. They always get compliments, I love them all.
