This one of a kind carving of a sea Goddess being embrace by the textured tentacles of an octopus. Please notice the details of the coral at the base of her hair and the suction cups covering the surface of the tentacles.
It has a sterling silver bale and measures 2 1/2' Length X 2 1/2' Wide.
I'm listing these very special carved pendants as supplies because I did not carve them and so don't want to misrepresent them as being my own work. The source that I get them from at the Intl. Gem and Mineral Show in Tucson AZ each spring allows me to hand pick through them. That way I can feel their texture, check for fractures or defects and become inspired by the fine details of each piece. No two are ever alike as they are individually carved.
The Bone jewelry is made from water buffalo bone collected after the animal has passed on and it comes from Indonesia.
My source complies completely with Fair Trade Policies and Practices. Rainadelmagick always sends along a thank you gift of a field collected crystal or mineral with all purchases!
