InstructionsDo not rush the project. It requires patience, planning and, for me at least, a couple of reworks before I was satisified.

What was your inspiration?
My sweet daughter-in-law collects elephants, but they must have upraised trunks to catch and hold good luck. I saw this pendant and knew I must make a special necklace around it for her birthday.
What are you most proud of?
That I could make her a gift that expresses my love and affection.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
For me this was a labor of love. I don't know if I would have had the patience to work it out without that modivation.
