[Derrick R. Cruz from Black Sheep & Prodigal Sons took Pamela Love‘s signature Talon Cuff and tricked the ish out of it. Six natural black diamonds (!) are set in an oxidized sterling silver talon, and—get this—outfitted with claws that are carved from 10-30,000 year old Siberian woolly mammoth tusks. Fourteen have been produced till now!]
