When I was a wee-little girl, I remember watching a woman make these at a little tourist shop in Lake of the Ozarks and thought this was the coolest thing ever.  I still do!!

Love these.  They're two of my favorite things, elephants and glass crafts.  I soo want to learn lampworking, but sadly no time or money for such things.  I'll content myself with adoring your work.  Thanks for sharing.

Don't separate them.  They need each other. Smiley  I love both of them.  They are so sweet & you did a beautiful job.  I am jealous. Wink

I think they are wonderful and are even better considering you were on glass hiatus! Are you working in soft glass or boro?

ps - I'd keep them too  Wink

Thanks for all the wonderful comments everyone! Cheesy And don't fret, these two are definitely staying together! I made two more elephants today....I'm thinking I should probably not make them in pairs since I may run into this problem again...but I love elephants so much, I can't help it!

I loooove elephants!  These are adorable!  I am already jealous of your friend who might be lucky enough to get one or two.  Did you create the shape yourself or use a mold?  Meh, I'm so insanely jealous!
I created the shape myself! It's all free formed so all the elephants have their own personalities.

These little guys are made out of boro.
