This elephant I carved for my wife (because she loves elephants). It is carved from a piece of onyx and made the tusks from pieces of bone. I strung it on a satin cord and made some bone beads to finish it off. Hope you enjoy!

This is amazing. How do you carve something like this? The elephant has so much character.

Thank you, I should really start adding stuff to my pictures for size comparison... I often forget... it is about the size of a nickle
