Samwise Kitty Lord Of The Rings Parody Necklace
Jewelry - Polymer Clay And Sterling Silver
This orange kitten hugs a sterling Elvish rope, wears an olive cloak and hazelnut outfit. He and has a pink seed bead nose and brown eyes. Sam's Elvish rope is baked into the clay and sealed with clear glaze so it will never need polishing. He also comes with an 18-inch black PVC cord with sterling clasp and a velour gift bag upon adoption.
Samwise Gamgee is first introduced in The Fellowship of the Ring. When the fellowship was split up at the Falls of Rauros, Sam refused to give up his responsibilities to Frodo; he insisted on being allowed to accompany him. He carried most of the luggage, cooked, kept watch at night whenever he could, and rationed the food so Frodo had enough for the journey. It was then they encountered Gollum, who quickly became their guide. Sam never trusted the creature, and rightly, as he eventually led them to the lair of Shelob in an attempt to gain the ring after they were eaten by her. Shelob managed to sting Frodo, paralyzing and apparently killing him. In retaliation, Sam bravely battled Shelob single-handedly, inflicting upon her a grievous wound that forced her to retreat.
With Frodo seemingly dead, Sam was forced to take the Ring himself, and briefly became a Ring-Bearer. Unique among the Ring-Bearers, he was able to throw off the Ring's promise of power with barely a moment of temptation, and used its power of invisibility to rescue Frodo from the Orcs who held him captive. The two then journey alone, through many dangers, encountering Gollum again, to the eventual climax of the story and the destruction of the ring at Mount Doom.(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.
