Whimsy Wednesday! An Elephant at Play!

Hello Everyone!
Welcome to this Whimsy Wednesday!
I hope your week has been filled with magic and many things that encourage you to smile so far!
I'm happy to have a whimsical new creation to show off today!
Title: An Elephant at Play!
Ingredients: Hand-carved Elephant(Boxwood), Sandalwood, Rosewood, Bali and Sterling Silver, Hand-dyed fiber(USA), Fray-check.
I hand-picked this elephant because of its simple and utter joy and playful well as the detailed carving!  The elephant has feet!  And foot pads! And the most delightful, twirling, upraised trunk!  So many details that are hard to capture via photos.  Perhaps you'll just have to see it in person! *grin*
So, today seemed the perfect day to create something with this charming fellow!  The position of the trunk reminds me of elephants playing in the water and lo! The idea of what to suspend our elephant from was borne!

Here is a view of the creation on a mannequin!
Though playful, I wanted to include more details in the form of materials and a "foundation" if you will, of the spiritual or sacred. Some of these details include star-shaped Bali silver heishi, sterling silver(thought to help with intuition), sandalwood (a wood sacred to many religions including Buddhist, Muslim, and Pagan) and Rosewood (also sacred in many traditions). 

The necklace portions is hand-dyed fiber procured directly from the artist (who resides in Idaho, USA) and finally, the spiral clasp (Bali silver) is a sacred symbols dating back thousands of years and across every culture.
So there you have it, a bit of whimsy and myth; sacred and playful, all at once!
Don't forget about my next exciting event!!!
