Sage Oryx Wrap Bracelet
Oryx were introduced into southern New Mexico's White Sands Missile Range in 1969 as exotic big game. Coyotes and mountain lions posed no threat and the oryx thrived, tipping the balance of the White Sands National Monument's ecosystem. The stylized image of stark black horns against white gypsum sands is one only conjured up in dreams. I received an oryx skull with horns from a friend (thanks, Matt) whose father found while walking near White Sands.
The Oryx bracelet can be worn as a short necklace or wrapped 3 times as a bracelet.
