Horned Lizard-Toad-Frog Bracelet
TCU fans beware - This might be the coolest thing a true TCU fan could own...
Nacho and I designed this especially to share with fans like you !
This piece was fabricated in @36 hours after a careful study of pages of photos that had been researched about this elusive creature. Nacho got really excited about the project and missed a full nights sleep while working on it...just another example of how Nacho puts his heart and soul into every last handmade detail.
Here is some wikepedia info I found about this interesting creature :
Horned lizards are a genus of the Phrynosomatidae family of lizards. The horned lizard is popularly called a "horned toad," "horny toad", or "horned frog," but it is neither a toad nor a frog. The popular names come from the lizard's rounded body and blunt snout, which make it resemble a toad or frog. (Phrynosoma literally means "toad-bodied.") The spines on its back and sides are made from modified scales, whereas the horns on the heads are true horns (i.e. they have a horny core). There are 14 species of horned lizards in North America, 8 of which are native to the United States. The largest-bodied and most widely distributed of the U.S. species is the Texas horned lizard .
