Pelicans are fascinating, yet comical-looking, birds. They are one of the largest flying birds and have unique features that allow them to hunt for fish.

Most people know that pelicans scoop up fish in the large pouch beneath their bill, but did you know that pelicans also have a expandable jaw? When the birds dive into the water, the jaw expands like a parachute, scooping up an amazing 3 gallons of water that must be squeezed out before they can swallow their catch.

But for all their hard work, the pelican may still not get to eat, as seagulls have been known to steal fish right out of the pelican's pouch, sometimes while standing on its head.

We are lucky today to have these whimsical birds still with us. In the 60s and 70s, they nearly became extinct in North America due to the effects of DDT. Thankfully, due to strict regulations on pesticides, they have become plentiful again.

This cute necklace features a cute pelican with all its unique features - the large head and long beak with a pouch, and a large oblong body. An antiqued finish brings out the details of its head and feathers.

We wanted to give our customers a way of personalizing their pendants, but many of the pieces in our store are textured on the backside, have an uneven surface, or a design on all sides, making it impossible to engrave them.

Our solution to this problem was to offer engravable charms that you can add onto any necklace. They are small, about 1/2" wide (12 mm) and come with free engraving on the front side (backside engraving is available for an additional charge).

We currently only have these in two shapes (a heart or circle), but will be adding more as time goes on. The charms are also engraved in-house and custom fit with findings to match your pendant.

You can choose engravable charm options right on the product page of any pendant. Below are a few photographs of charms we've made for customers in the past, along with their pendants. I've also included a photo of a cute necklace we made for a customer with many of our themed charms.
