I Am Lion..hear me ROAR

Gold chunky necklaces are the hottest trend right now, and I have been on the hunt for one until I stumbled across this Barbary lion necklace currently sold at Urban Outfitters.  I've realized my accessory collection holds a bunch of animal pendants, rings, bracelets...etc  Deep down I must yearn for a connection with nature or it might be my Native American blood trying to seek a connection with these majestic creatures!  Either way, I live in a desert so all I get to see in their natural habitat are  pigeons, spiders and occasionally a woodpecker if I'm lucky!  I guess I live vicariously through these animals when I wear a piece of jewelry.  Today I like to think of myself as a lion..well, maybe it's my wild unruly hair that makes me feel like I have a lion's mane on my head!  Anyhow, Barbary lions are considered to be the largest and the heaviest of the lion subspecies.  "The Romans used Barbary lions in the Coliseum to battle with Gladiators.  In the middle ages, the lions kept in the menagerie at the Tower of London were Barbary lions as shown by DNA testing of the two well preserved skulls excavated at the Tower in 1937." -Wikipedia I personally like to wear this necklace alone to dress up a simple tee or paired with a long simple necklace.  This necklace definitely makes a statement and I looove it!
