Gorilla Necklace


Dwelling in the rainforests of Central Africa they are the largest of all primates. Intelligent, strong, social and yet shy, they have DNA that is 99% like ours. Handy with tools and adept at picking up hand signals, gorillas are 8 times stronger than most people. They subsist on a diet of leaves and fruit and build new nests after every evening meal. Small wonder Tarzan enjoyed life amid such creatures. Gorillas are essential and we need to protect them.

Manymals are a unique family of jewelry comprised of creatures that hang by nature. This first line is called "Wild Ones"and represents wild animals from around the world. The original forms are handsculpted by Markus Diebel; they are then cast in different materials, handpolished and packaged in San Francisco. The special packaging is made from 100% recycled paper pulp and each package features a story about the manymal inside. At a presentation of Wild Aid, Markus met Bo Derek, who encouraged him to support her cause. With part of the proceeds going to WildAid, your purchase actually helps the animals whose beauty it captures.
