Pack Basket Charm
Our Sterling Silver Pack Basket Charm is modeled after Jim's grandfather's. It has a traditional round "belly" that bows out just slightly, shoulder straps and a harness. Flip it upside down, you'll even see its feet! We've fashioned this historical Adirondack item into a unique piece of jewelry.
Pack Baskets are one of the oldest surviving Adirondack traditions dating back to the mid-1800's when they were used by guides to carry heavy loads. I think of them as the original back packs.
It measures 1/2" h x 3/8" w. We "antique", darkened the finish to bring out the woven details. The necklace comes with a quality USA manufactured sterling silver chain, all parts are soldered for strength & durability.
The earrings are available with either sterling silver lever-backs (shown in photo) or sterling silver french wires. Lever-backs have a steel spring that securely holds the hinged back closed making this style more secure & comfortable while french wires are an affordable (and very popular) alternative.
Also available in solid 14kt Gold, pricing is based on current Gold Market.
