This wearable baby Harbor Seal figurine has a silver loop and seed bead nose and eyes. She has been hand-painted and coated in three layers of glossy glaze for durability. She comes with an 18-inch 2mm black PVC cord with a sterling silver clasp and a velour gift bag upon adoption.
$5 from the purchase of this necklace goes to adoption of a threatened or endangered animal chosen by Animini City Facebook fans.
Harbor seals inhabit coastal waters, beaches, rocky shores and mouths of rivers. Also known as common seals, they may remain at sea for several days and travel great distances in search of feeding grounds, but tend to return to familiar resting areas along rocky shorelines. Their diet consists of fish and squid, and they generally eat about five percent of their body weight daily—roughly 10 pounds.
In addition to entanglement in fishing gear, harbor seals are also threatened by pollution and reprisal killings for damage done to fisheries.

Animini collectible animal pals are about the size of a US quarter. They are made of durable chip- and shatter-resistant polymer clay and are coated in two or more layers of glossy glaze, keeping their colors bright and giving them the appearance of a china figurine. I don't use molds so every Animini in a series has his or her own personality; they are individually sculpted and painted by hand and details are added with a straight pin.
