Pathfinders Wildlife Pendants

Our Pathfinders Pendants line consists of over 130 original wildlife designs by 6 Michigan artists. We are the sole producer of these pendants that are hand crafted in our studio in DeWitt, Michigan. We began the line in 2005, and today continue to celebrate wildlife by creating pendants with intrinsic meaning and quality that withstands the tests of time. With simplicity and elegance, each piece summons our natural desire to share what has meaning to us, with others.  Each piece invites us to tell our own story.

The Pathfinder line is sustainably made, durable and contemporary in appeal.  Each of the designs is kiln-fired into clay at 2200°F, producing detailed imagery in porcelain, with remarkable clarity and ceramic-hard durability that cannot peel or wear off.   Each piece is surprisingly lightweight, finished to a satin touch and comfortable to wear.

Every Pathfinder is an expression of our wonder and appreciation for animals, with which we share our world. From the dawn of time, animals have been our friends, teachers and guides. Pathfinders celebrate the power of these relations. Our Pathfinders Pendants line is perfect for wildlife refuges, sanctuaries, nature preserves, state parks, and festivals honoring wildlife. They are as integral to small gift shops around the corner as to our nation’s heritage monuments and national parks, including Yellowstone National Park, Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Death Valley National Park and many more across the USA. 

Pathfinders are offered in your choice of two different packaging styles. Hang-carded pendants are presented on a two-sided card with the pendant and the animal’s attributes displayed on the front.  The reverse side has the scientific name and four interesting "It's True" interpretive facts. Gift boxed pendants are presented on flocked foam with a descriptive card (shown). In the lower half of the descriptive card, below the tracks, is a poem in a Japanese Haiku format.
