Elephant Love Necklace

About this design:

The hand cut stoneware heart pendant was made by Emily Cohen of Catfish Studio. She cut it from a pottery shard I shared with her, tumbled it smooth then sent it back to me with some of your elephant beads...the rest is history and the Elephant Love necklace was born!

    I love what Barbara does with my jewelry components. She can make clay, glass or metal look fantastic in her designs.

    I just love the elephant necklace.

    Great necklace! The stoneware pendant is a lovely crafted piece. Really like how you showcased it on the green leather with the hand-made coil bail. The elephant is a perfect touch! :)

    What a cool necklace- I love everything about it. I especially like how you have the elephant attached-made for a very unique bail. Awesome job!

    I’ve never seen a pendant made out of a ceramic shard before. What a neat idea and look. The handmade bail and leather really make this special.
