The bat has been much maligned over the years, but is crucial to our ecosystem. It performs vital ecological roles such as pollinating flowers. Many tropical plants depend entirely on bats for seed dispersal. Cavin has antiqued the bronze wings to give contrasting detail between the wings and body. The bat is richly detailed on both sides. The earring hooks are made from gray niobium (hypoallergenic) with heishi beads and coils. The earrings are ⅞ inch from wingtip to wingtip. Bronze. Made in USA.

A matching pendant is available.

  • Cavin Richie

    Cavin Richie grew up in Colorado surrounded by the natural beauty of the Rocky Mountains. He moved to Washington State in 1970 and has lived near the sea ever since. Cavin's designs are a reflection of his surroundings. His line includes birds, mammals and amphibians, all accurately detailed. For the past thirty years he has carved with shed elk antler and woolly mammoth ivory. These carvings became the basis for his lost wax casting jewelry.

    "Carving," says Cavin "is like touching antiquity. I feel a kinship with a long lineage of carvers dating back to the Pleistocene."

    We are pleased to offer these solid bronze lost wax castings. A patina complements the earthy metal, giving each piece a unique finish.
