Koala Necklace


If you spot one in the eucalyptus forests of Australia it may either be asleep or chewing on leaves, its favorite food. In some aboriginal languages, its name simply means "no drink." That's because Koalas extract all their water from leaves they eat. Their vegetarian diet keeps them lean so their furry coat (one of the thickest) provides perfect shelter from cold, rainy weather or spiky branches. They are marsupials, so baby Koalas grow in their mother's pouch, snug until they grow a cute coat of their own...for us to drool over.

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.
