"Unexpected Pleasures"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This pendant is lovely in the picture, but has unexpected pleasures in real life. Outside the curve of the crescent moon are more figures: a howling coyote, a cat, stars and more moons. And the solar and lunar faces are carved with great sensitivity. (I removed the leather thong, and wear this pendant on a silver chain.

"Stellar craftmanship!! More amazing in person!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I knew I was going to LOVE this pendant, and the detail is even more exquisite than it appears in the picture! I plan to bead a new chain for the sun and moon, because the string just doesnt do the carving justice!!! Really amazing! Id buy matching earrings if I saw them, too!! SO reasonable!!

As usual from this artist, very lovely artistry and excellent workmanship. I gave it a 4 instead of a 5 because its a bit lighter in weight than I prefer. An eye-catching design.
