This is an OOAK Davison necklace made from very fun pieces. Together, they blend perfectly in color, contrast, balance and textures.
The elephant pendant is almost 2" wide so he is not to be missed.
The elephant piece came from an antique dealer with lots of really cool pieces. I wanted all of them, but I gave them a want list for hunting across the US.
The elephant is a vintage to antique piece that came from a pair of earrings. The earring set was too unique to leave as earrings, and the elephant's heads were just a tad LARGE for earrings, so I used one for this necklace.
The elephant has wonderful detail and perfect patina. The patina adds great dimension to an already dimensional, iconic face.
Beautiful hand-etched adornment around the ears and face give this charming little elephant depth and appeal. The trunk is raised on the face which is good luck!!
A sterling silver pierced bead with marcasite accents and Swarovski crystal pendant hangs from the elephant's trunk.
The elephant hangs from lovely sterling silver chain which is adorned with a set of six sterling beads and three Swarovski bicone crystals (two AB and one smoky-gray). The little details on the chain complement the pendant and add a bit more sparkle to the sterling chain.
A simple, but substantial, lobster-claw clasp makes the necklace both adjustable and comfortable.
I LOVE this elephant and was so happy to find the set. He is so unique and detailed. He is a perfect size for this necklace. The piece looks great when worn.
