    This sure is a Happy piece. I like how you pulled all the different colors in the Elephant out into the design. Reminds me of all the fun we used to have at local fairs & circuses with their colorful tents, balloons, & games. Since the pendant was a gift from your daughter, do Elephants have special meaning to you?

    What a stunning necklace! You did a great job of bringing in the colors on the elephant so he could blend in it a predator appears.

    Absolutely wonderful BLE…I love elephants and this is a great pendant! I always like your little unexpected accents…like the little Fringes that picked up the colors.

    I really like how you used white as the background color to make the colorful seed beads and elephant focus pop!

    Thank you all very much!
    Crystal – I love most animals – but maybe elephants a little more – such huge, gentle creatures.
    Pam – so funny about the predators.

    Before I read your description I zoomed in on the pendant- hoping to see a chicken or some other farm animal. alas! an elephant! An animal that loves her babies and the herd joins in- keeping that baby safe. That’s my science lesson for the day!:)

    Such a happy and bright theme. I love the elephant, and of course you did a spectacular job with the beading. I love animals as well.
