Materials

sterling silver, black spinel

Dimensions

Pendant height: 1.5 Inches; Pendant width: 1.5 Inches

SIZE: The pendant measures 1.5" wide by 1.5" tall. It hangs from your choice of a 14", 16", 18" or 20"sterling chain with a lobster clasp. Model is wearing 16" length. Convo me if you prefer a different length chain.

PRODUCT AND PROCESS INFO: This necklace is a tribute to the beautiful African elephant. I carefully carved the original face out of jeweler's wax, then made a mold so I can cast this in any metal you like! After I get each casting back to the studio, I do all the finishing and oxidizing on each one to bring out the little features. I then set 2mm black spinel stones in the eyes. (Check out my Instagram for carving process shots!)

CARE: Clean with included silver polishing swatch, or your choice of silver cloth. I recommend this method to to keep the raised details bright and clean yet leave the carved marks dark.

CUSTOMIZATION: Convo me if you would like a different stone in the eyes.

Ring version of the same elephant is available here: http://etsy.me/2qcCC8l
Brass version (fifth photo) also available upon request.

Fun Fact: Elephants prefer one tusk over the other, just as people are either left or right-hands. And their tusks are actually their giant incisor teeth.

Jewelry that needs polishing comes with a polishing swatch and care info on a card. Most items that can tarnish also come with an airtight baggie and anti-tarnish swatch for storage. You can find additional care info in each item's details.

Silver jewelry can be polished with any commercial polishing cloth. I don't recommend liquid cleaners as this will remove the detail oxidation.

I am happy to create custom orders. If there is an etching or carving you would like that I believe I can add to my line, it will be similarly priced to other stock items. If it is a unique item just for you, design rates start at about $150, then go up based on how many hours of labor and revisions we need to go through, plus the final cost of materials.
I am also happy to cast your bees into resin, or use your personal snake's shedding on an ouroboros! Just shoot me a convo, and I can send you my shipping address.
All jewelry come in the box with ribbon as pictured, and if you select additional gift wrap to be added, I will put that into a nice linen pouch stamped with my logo as well. To be honest, I only added the specific gift wrap option to be included in the Etsy algorithm- all of my jewelry comes packaged gift-ready regardless!
Sizing availability is in each item's details. I can make most necklaces and rings any size you like, just shoot me a convo before ordering.
Yes I do offer wholesale! You can send me a convo with your email address and store info and I will send line sheets directly.
Yes! I would love to make something special just for the two of you. Please contact me directly.
