Merchandise

Don't know what to get your friends for Christmas? Why not buy them a Four Elements pendant!

The profit from the sales of the pendants will be contributed to the Bearded Vulture Project.

The sterling silver pendant design was inspired by the Four Elements logo. The logo signifies determination and courage! It was inspired by Aristotle's theory that our world was made up of four elements; water, fire, earth and air. Our dream for the environment is symbolised by four threatened creatures; sharks (water), rhinos (earth), bearded vultures (air) and those of us with a burning desire to make a difference (fire).
