Paula says - "This necklace is from the estate of the Count and Countess Claes-Eric de Lewenhaupt of Sweden. It was part of the Count's personal belongings.

"Count Eric, as he preferred to be called, served as an officer in the Swedish Royal Navy and as a diplomat in Russia, France, Egypt and Spain. He moved to Florida in 1975 where he lived until his death in 1991.

"I had several experts, including Native American silversmiths look at this necklace and the consensus is that these are cougar claws. As far as who made the necklace, so far, I have not been able to determine that although it is quite old and made in the Navajo squash blossom style.

Store Policies

 

Cougar symbolizes grace, leadership, and strength. Cougar has the natural ability to lead without insisting that others follow. She teaches the ability to be so true to yourself - in responsibility, honesty, responsibility -and to trust your inner knowledge and direction. Cougar can impart power and self-confidence when dealing with problematic people. The Cherokee people consider Cougar sacred because she has the power to see in the dark.

(Note: All natural claws have slight imperfections - many of them have a rub mark, a scratch, a crack or even a piece missing. Like the lines in people's fingernails, these imperfections are just part of the claw. In fact, that is one way you can tell that the claw is authentic and not man-made.)
