    Love, love, love the elephants! They make a cheerful addition to the absolutely gorgeous bead work.

    When I saw the elephants they reminded me of an off center poem that my British friend told me years ago.
    East is east and west is west
    Though this may not be relevant
    We all know how to milk a cow
    But you can’t muck about
    With an elephant
    Just another useless piece of trivia. :D

    The elephants are wonderful in this necklace design. At first I thought they were Jade, but now I see they are grey. I like the way they face each other in the pairs. Whenever I watch a nature show that features them, I am always impressed by their empathy & cooperation among the herd. Maybe people can learn much from this majestic animals. A nice tribute piece to them.

    I love this necklace! To me it is a wear any day necklace. Of course Valentine’s Day it is very appropriate. However it is an every day reminder that we should be loving all the other people in the world also. What better way to share that love than through this gorgeous necklace?!

    I love these elephants. You would think they were jade at first glance. The seed beads just glow. The word boutique comes to mind because this is something I might expect to see in a boutique or maybe one of the shops in Old Sacramento. I love those shops but almost never go there because they are SO expensive. But they have the best and most interesting stuff.
