Bronze Vintage Elephants
I cast these whimsical earrings in recycled bronze from a mold I made of an antique elephant button. The elephant looks happy with a playful smile on it's face. The image is accented with a marcasite like granulated edge. As sometimes happens with bronze, it came out of the kiln with a subtle rainbow color, you never know what bronze will come out looking like so, while I may repeat designs, each piece of jewelry made from the repeated design is still one of a kind because no two loads fire the same - there is even a lot of variation in color in the same load!
These earrings measure overall just under 7/8 inches (about 22mm) long, minus the earwire they are just under 5/8 inches (about 14mm) round.
