Hi there.
I have my Father's elephant collection...left to me when he died.
Today would have been his birthday and I was thinking of things to do in his memory.
In the collection there is one very tiny cystal elephant that I would love to turn into a pendant. Any ideas on how to go about this?
It's about 5/8 of an inch across, and maybe a quarter of an inch in thickness. Thanks alot!

I probably should have posted a pic....my camera is being weird now.
I thought about wire wrapping even though I only have a vague idea of how to do it, but I dont know how it would work for this particular ornament.
Thanks you very much for your input.

That's too bad, because if I had a pic, I could likely tell you where to start and where to finish.
