Frodo Kitty Hugging The One Ring Lord Of The Rings Parody Necklace
Jewelry - Polymer Clay And Sterling Silver
This polymer clay kitten is wearing a maroon outfit with a white shirt and green cape. He has seed bead nose and blue eyes and is slightly taller than a Kitten Animini.
He has been coated in three layers of glossy glaze for durability and longevity and comes with an 18-inch 2mm black PVC cord with a sterling silver clasp and a velour gift bag upon adoption.
Frodo Baggins is a fictional character in J. R. R. Tolkien's legendarium.
He is a principal protagonist of Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings. He is also mentioned in The Silmarillion. He was a hobbit of the Shire who inherited Sauron's Ring from Bilbo Baggins and undertook the quest to destroy it in Mount Doom.
Frodo, as described by Gandalf, was "taller than some and fairer than most, [with] a cleft in his chin: perky chap with a bright eye." He had thick, curly brown hair like most other hobbits, and had lighter-than-usual skin due to his Fallohide ancestry through his Brandybuck mother. Frodo is described as appearing thirty-three, even when he is fifty, due to the influence of the Ring.
Bilbo and Frodo shared a common birthday on 22 September, but Bilbo was 78 years Frodo's senior. At the opening of The Fellowship of the Ring, Frodo and Bilbo were celebrating their thirty-third and one hundred and eleventh birthdays, respectively.
Frodo, like Bilbo, was considered by many others in Hobbiton to be a little odd. His interests in the outside world, fascination with Elves and faraway places (like those to which Bilbo traveled in The Hobbit) did not fit the general content personality of most Hobbits. This curiosity was also attributed to his Took ancestry. The Tooks were also famous for their adventurous nature.
Frodo was dressed in typical Hobbit-fashion when he left the Shire: knee-breeches, shirt, waistcoat, jacket, cloak. Colours such as bright green and yellow were typical for Shire-folk. He was unarmed, save for a pocket-knife.(Adapted from Wikipedia)
Animini collectible animal pals are about the size of a US quarter, but Hobbit parodies are kittens the size of a nickel. They are made of durable chip- and shatter-resistant polymer clay and are coated in two or more layers of glossy glaze, keeping their colors bright and giving them the appearance of a china figurine. I don't use molds so every Animini in a series has his or her own personality; they are individually sculpted and painted by hand and details are added with a straight pin.
Due to differences in monitor color displays and because each pendant is individually sculpted, the actual necklace may appear slightly different than the one pictured.
