"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.

I loved it and it looked so nice with a V neck shirt. I was saddened when I was taking it off one night and it fell apart and the beads flew everywhere. However, it was beautiful wood.
