"Handwork of a higher sort"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

What a lovely and incandescent piece this is. Simple yet involved. If you hold the pendant far away, you see the design of a plant curving up from the ground. Hold it closer, to the light, and you see the elephant behind the plant. Due to its generous size, it is a statement piece - but of quietude and natural things. The wood bead necklace is just as lovely in its simplicity. I love this piece and will wear it with honor throughout my life.

"Lovely Necklace!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

The workmanship is perfect. Really love that there is no metal as I am allergy to metal. Just put over your head no clasps to deal with. Nice size and a statement piece. Light weight too. Amazing carving on this elephant necklace. I think it is one of my favorites.
