Desert Fox Necklace
Out of Africa Collection
A loveable handmade Desert Fox Necklace, celebrating the smallest of all the world’s foxes. Hand-carved to perfection, full of intricate details that foxy fans will adore. Oversized ears? Check. Textured bushy tail? Check. Inquisitive little face? Check. He/she has it ALL.
The Fennec Fox is one of few creatures whose habitat - the Sahara - is growing, which might sound like a good thing, but it actually results in less fertile land for the African people and animals. Through the BBC's Perfect Planet we found out about a remarkable project aiming to plant one billion drought resistant trees along the southern part of the Sahara. These trees will help store water when it rains and provide food, fodder and natural fertiliser; encourage beekeeping and help with soil conservation. We will donate £10 of each Fennec Fox sale to the International Tree Foundation, paying for trees to be planted in Africa.
Our little Fantastic Mr Fennec Fox (or is it Mrs? We can’t decide… your necklace, your call) is ready to leave the dusty Sahara Desert behind and find a new home with you. All you need to do is pick which colour precious metal your fabulous fox should be.
There’s nothing more stunning than a shiny sterling silver Fennec fox necklace, unless you’re a gold lover, in which case you’ll enjoy this fox pendant cast in your choice of 9 or 18ct rose, yellow, or white solid gold. If you’re a stickler for realism, remember yellow gold is the closest match to the Fennec fox’s fluffy vanilla coloured coat.
Did you know that real life Fennec foxes are crepuscular, which means they are most active during Twilight hours? We have a sneaky suspicion you’ll want to show off this fox pendant all night AND day.

Because protecting our environment is important to us, we no longer offer gold plating. This process requires the use of many toxic chemicals. Instead, and where possible, we are using 100% recycled solid gold and silver. Better for us, better for the planet!
