When you're in the Pennsylvania Wilds, it's easy to say, "Nature surrounds me." One of the biggest blocks of green between New York City and Chicago, the Pennsylvania Wilds is home to 2 million acres of public forest, 29 state parks, eight state forests, 50 state game lands and the 500,000-acre Allegheny National Forest. This uniquely designed copper mandala charm pendant with toggle and faux leather cording uses many different designs inspired by nature. Each one is unique in its design, but no matter the style you choose, there's no doubt this pendant will always surround you with nature no matter where you might be.
