This piece is a hand-made replica of Keiko’s flukes designed according to a few pictures of his tail. Keiko was the famous Free Willy orca and also the first captive orca to ever swim in open waters again. He is also the reason why so many of us fell in love with these beautiful creatures in the first place <3
Orca Legacy was created in memory of Keiko and this is another tribute to his name. By wearing Keiko’s tail flukes tail around your neck, you’re honoring his legacy.
By purchasing this necklace (and any other item in our store), you are making a donation* to the Keiko Legacy Fund, established by the Whale Sanctuary Project, which are building the very first seaside sanctuary in North America for captive orcas & belugas! Help us create this heaven on earth for mistreated cetaceans and continue Keiko’s enduring Legacy.
This pendant is hand-made and hand-painted by me, Jana, the owner of Orca Legacy. It is made of Polymer Clay, which is a super light type of baked clay, painted with acrylics and finished with a double layer of gloss varnish. It also has his name carved on the back of the pendant.
Polymer Clay makes the pendant super light and durable. It will survive a drop on the floor, no worries. It’s tested 🙂
The Keiko tail flukes come on a waxed cotton string adjustable necklace, but if you prefer silver, you can get it on a sterling silver necklace here.
All pieces are almost identical, but because they are hand-made, each one is slightly unique and one of a kind 🙂
This orca tail necklace comes in custom Orca Legacy packaging, with a leaflet telling our story and informing you about your donation toward the sanctuary.
