As a wide-eyed and innocent little cub, GLOOMY Bear was rescued by a boy named Pity. At first, he was cute and cuddly. But as he grew, so too did his wild and ferocious, animalistic instincts. Born and raised in Japan, Mori Chack started selling Gloomy Bear illustrations on the streets of Osaka in 2000. Gloomy's mix of cuteness, violence and unexpected emotional depth was an instant hit. Two decades later Gloomy is now one of Japan’s most iconic pop-culture characters. Mori Chack has teamed up with Los Angeles based artist ONCH to bring you the first ever American Gloomy Bear jewelry collaboration. This limited edition release is your chance to own a piece of wearable art that incorporates signature elements from both iconic artists. Our Gloomy Bear pretzel heart necklace is made of thick enamel element (2.25") suspended on high quality stainless steel ball chain. Necklace measures 18". Hand assembled in Los Angeles.
