Tribal Bohemian Giraffe

About this design:

I love a Bohemian look...This one was inspired by the Sterling Silver Giraffe that is the pendant to the necklace. It's actually part of an earring set that I've had for many years. It was always a little heavy on my ear, so I repurposed it. It's much happier dangling from this necklace!


Turquoise, Magnesite, Bone, Horn, Agate, Silver Plated chain from LB, Assorted silver plated findings, clasp, wire.
