"Lovely Necklace!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

The workmanship is perfect. Really love that there is no metal as I am allergy to metal. Just put over your head no clasps to deal with. Nice size and a statement piece. Light weight too. Amazing carving on this elephant necklace. I think it is one of my favorites.
