Michigan has 6,500 lakes of 10 acres or more in size. It has nearly 3,300 miles of shoreline, second only to Alaska, thanks to its bordering four of the Great Lakes. That shoreline is also the most freshwater shoreline of any state. There's nowhere in Michigan that's more than 6 miles from a lake, and nowhere that's more than 85 miles from a Great Lake!
If you count its share of the Great Lakes, Michigan is 41.5% water, with over 40,000 square miles of water. It also has the largest freshwater island in the country, Isle Royale.
We've started our Michigan series with some necklaces of our the best Michigan lakes, plus a few requested by our friends. The pendants are laser-cut from 1/8" alder wood and depict the lake and its islands in detail. The large size measures 2" to 2-1/4" in its longest dimension and really stands out. It's for men and women who like large pendants. The medium size is the most popular and measures 1-1/4" to 1-1/2". The small size measures 1" to 1-1/8" is designed for the petite-jewelry lover, and is more about the shape of the lake than the details. It prompts "What is that?" from the viewer. Pendants come on a 20" adjustable waxed cotton chain with a decorative bail. All components are environmentally friendly and are lead- and nickel-free.
