Another original in my "Curious Critters" series!
It is hand engraved using a special engraving tool which she has made and sharpened to the finest point.
This piece was created by using the very time consuming techniques of crosshatching and stippling in many overlapping layers to gradually render the image.
Stippling refers to the process of piercing hundreds of pin pint holes in the ivory to hold the ink, providing the ultimate in detail!
This pendant is made of vintage pre-ban ivory which I have had in my possesion for over 30 years.
The back is signed and embellished with a tiny cup of coffee.
1 " wide x 1 3/8" long.
This piece is an original one of a kind.
My work has been sold in galleries and stores across the United States , Canada and Europe.
