This Pot Bellied Pig Hoof Pendant (Etsy, $26) is sooooo much more than a necklace! Here's its backstory from the Etsy seller:
The hoof is from a very old pot-bellied pig that was once a pet on a hobby farm. He escaped one day and his owners were never able to recapture him. He stayed close to the farm, living in the woods and sneaking back in the evenings to eat food they left out for him. They saw him lurking around on a somewhat regular basis for several years after his escape, but then one day he stopped coming and eating the food. About a year later the owner of the farm was walking through the woods and spotted some animal bones under a tree. Upon inspection they proved to be the pig's bones. Scavengers had made off with most of the skeleton, but the skull and toenails were still there. After acquiring the bones I knew I had to create a remembrance in his honor and pass along the story.
Brings a tear to my eye...
BUT WAIT. THERE'S MORE.
