African-Inspired Claw Jewelry 


Our African-inspired line of jewelry has many pieces that are designed around or are accented by the claw from an African cat, most often being from a lion or leopard. 


You will find each of these items displayed and described in more depth on the pages categorized by jewelry type, but here you will find a wide array of examples of claw jewelry to present the capabilities and past pieces done by Singleton-Moss.
