Perfect for the Hippo Lover!
Anna Yawson has carved a magnificent hippo! The necklace is adjustable and will make the perfect and unique gift for my daughter, who collects hippos. It is definitely one of a kind and she has nothing like it. She will be thrilled with Annas wonderful craftsmanship!
This necklace was perfect for a blouse with 4 round wood beads at the front keyhole. The length worked perfectly around the front design and the beads were in a lovely pattern and felt good to the touch.
