Bokkie pendant

Heart shape pendant on silk thread, cast into bronze, nickel free.

As an enthusiastic bone collector, I am constantly searching for unique natural pieces, and this exceptional find was graciously gifted to me. This steenbok vertebra, affectionately known as a “Bokkie” ,translates to “little buck” or “sweetheart,” a term of endearment in the Afrikaans language of South Africa.

This captivating heart-shaped bone embodies the steenbok’s unwavering connection to its lifelong mate, symbolizing resilience, endurance, and a deep sense of partnership in the face of adversity.
