Fall in love with this 2024 limited edition heart cactus skeleton necklace.

Once they're sold out, I'll never make this exact design again!

This handmade cactus skeleton pendant is made from actual Prickly Pear cactus skeletons (skeleton closeup shown). Using the lost wax casting process, each piece starts with a carefully selected section of Prickly Pear cactus skeleton.

  • The heart pendant is 0.75" on it's longest side.
    Chain options are 16" or 18", each with a 2" extender.

  • Timing: Ships in 3 - 5 business days, does not include transit time.
  • Lila Clare's cactus skeleton jewelry is handmade in Tucson, Arizona.

made from the desert

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.

artisan made

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.
