I thought it would be bigger (6” interior), but that s my fault for not really checking. Well made.

"Great for my ADHD son"

First off. Its a lovely simple piece of jewelry. It has held up well, and still looks great months later. BUT the real reason I got this for my son is because he has ADHD and fidgeting in the classroom can be an issue. Hes now in in high school and fidget toys can be too much. This is a great option that provides sensory input without noise or distraction to the teacher or his classmates. Looks great, helps his ADHD without distracting the class. Win/win

"Beautiful craftsmanship!"

My new ebony elephant catchall is a gorgeous piece of art crafted masterfully by Mr. Lanyo. I feel selfish keeping it on my dresser — it deserves to be seen by all who enter my home!
