Kavango Hippo


I fondly remember walking up to a big pond of hippos in the Okavango delta.  They couldn’t care less. But a few days later our boatsman was taking great pains to avoid them on the Zambezi river. A cute little hand textured Argentium 935 tarnish resistant sterling silver pendant with overlayed 20/14KY gold fill image of  a hippo. Each item is a hand made unique original but will closely approximate the photo here.




Hippo pendant jewelry silver and goldSometimes affectionately called “Mr Big Mouth” hippos are big gentle creatures of the African wilds. They go ashore a night to graze, then dispose of their waste in rivers and ponds at night – providing the waters with a rich set of natural nutrients. Goes great on any chain or cord. Large  free swinging bale allows for thicker cords or chains to hold this lovely chubby hippo pendant. Approx 2″wide and 1″ tall.
