These beautiful plants live in the harsh conditions of the desert with minimal water and resources and yet they are still able to thrive and flourish. Although as with all symbols, there are many meanings attached to the cactus, we love them because they provide a beautiful parallel to the strong spirit that all of our youth artisans possess to have overcome the multitude of obstacles they have encountered in life thus far.

Each of these necklaces features a cactus pendant and measures 16” in length. These necklaces are created with 925 sterling silver or 14KT gold-filled chain and findings so they are hypoallergenic as well as fade and tarnish resistant.
