A teeny tiny bronze bat, dangling from an 18" bronze chain. (You can let me know in the Notes to Seller section at checkout if you'd like a different length.)
In Tonga and ancient Babylonia, bats were considered physical manifestations of the Souls of the Dead. In China and Poland, they were symbols of Happiness and Long life, and to the ancient Mayans they symbolized Transformation and Rebirth.
In folklore, to wash your face in bat’s blood will enable you to see more clearly in the dark. To keep a piece of bat bone in your pocket will ensure good luck. Powdered bat’s heart will staunch bleeding or stop a bullet, and bullets from a gun swabbed with a bat’s heart will always hit their target. To put bat’s blood into someone’s drink will make him or her more passionate, and you can stimulate a woman’s desire by placing a drop of bat blood under her pillow.
Seems pretty legit! Harness all that bat-power by wearing this dainty necklace.
Comes carded on a metallic damask card, to avoid tangling in transit.
Your item won't ship until you pay, but after that it's all super speedy. If you need to cancel but the item is already in the mailbox, you'll need to e-mail me personally and I'll do everything within my power.
I ship via First Class USPS. This keeps your shipping inexpensive. I don't charge a handling fee, or for shipping supplies. You get charged the same amount I do, give or take a few cents.
International shipping First Class takes about a week or two, but sometimes it can take more than a month. It varies a lot, and is unpredictable. If you live outside the US and need your item quicker, send me a message beforehand and we can figure out the best way to get your item delivered on time.
The items in my shop that are fragile (glass) cost a bit more to ship, but only because I use a huge amount of care and packing peanuts. I used to be a cashier at Disneyland, so I know how to wrap a mug or two. I'm an expert, don't worry.

I love doing custom orders. If I could only do custom orders, I would. My turnaround time for a custom order is usually the same as an item that is in stock. Message me if you'd like to work that out.
I don't sell that Elmyra Duff bow anymore, sorry. It ruled, but it was labor intensive and a low-demand product. I feel you though, I don't even have one because I sold the very last one.
My jewelry is made with a jeweler's alloy, then coated in whatever metal (bronze, rose gold, silver). This turns me green and smells like Claire's, but my best friend wears the same stuff and has no problem. It's kind of a gamble. If you normally turn green, this will probably do it. I advise not getting it wet and not sleeping with it on.
Your item comes from a smoke-free home, but a cat does sit on my computer (right on my keyboard!! why!?) while I'm working.
