MANTIS pendant2 by ~WSi is an incredibly detailed and gorgeously sculpted pendant that even comes in it's own wooden box. This is an amazing example of hand crafted jewelry at it's best. ( Suggested by rins-art and Featured by MyntKat )

i'm impressed. not only with the beautiful design of this piece but the case and presentation. I would be reluctant to wear it with how good it looks in it's case.

this is what a pokemon fan would call 'a kabutops fossil", at least, that's what it automatically reminded me of. xD. Increadible job, lighting is perfect, and the whole things is very well made. The entire design is just superb
