An extraordinary sterling pin by artist David Lloyd c1980s.
His amazing craftsmanship is evident in this whimsical pin of a stylized wolf howling at the moon.
The meticulous workmanship and attention to detail is outstanding, even the back has decorative detailing.
The techniques used in the original creation are applique with surface texture created with chasing, stamping and piercing. This piece is a casting by the artist of his original handcrafted piece.
