Huge one of a kind pin made by artisan Amy Kahn Russell. This large construction is 5.5 inches long by 2.75 inches wide. As a very heavy piece for a pin, it also has a hook to wear as a pendant, or to hang on the wall as an art piece. It consists of a hand carved green quartz elephant, expertly fitted in sterling silver. Hanging from the elephant is a natural copper nugget, with green chrysoprase cabochon stone, all set in sterling silver. The sterling silver fittings are thick and substantial, and expertly applied. The piece looks almost as beautiful on the back as it does on the front. Very heavy piece, 4.3 oz. or 122 grams on my postal scale. Amy Russell Kahn has commercial lines of jewelry. But she also makes one of a kind pieces using interesting elements that she assembles into constructions that are more like art pieces than simply jewelry. Personally, I like this piece hanging on the wall. We have the original tag that came on this piece. Printed on the tag : Number 2319. Natural Copper from Michigan, Hand Carved Green Quartz, Chrysoprase, Sterling Silver. This piece is very three dimensional, with the elephant being 1/2 inch thick. If you like contemporary artisan jewelry, this is a winner.
