Allie’s Inspiration Story
I created this lariat necklace shortly after reading an article about
a large cat that escaped its enclosure at a zoo. I thought of the
difference in behavior of a caged animal vs. a wild or free one. Thus,
I used leopardskin jasper to represent the wild cat; and designed the
necklace with a “tamed”/contained section, and an unruly section.
