Our Painted Dog bracelet was inspired by the beautiful colors of the painted dog's fur and the African Plains that are their home. This bracelet is made from brown zebra jasper semi-precious stones.
Profits from this bracelet will benefit Painted Dog Conservation Inc. and painted dog conservation around the world.
The painted dog, also known as the painted wolf or African wild dog, is the most endangered large carnivore in Africa and currently red-listed by the IUCN. They have suffered a 99% population decline over the last 100 years, with only 5000 -7000 remaining in the wild. The painted dogs are not closely related to domestic dogs, cannot interbreed with anything else and once they are gone, they are gone forever.
