Artist: Lora Donohue

This men's or women's elk necklace would spice up any casual wear, outdoor wear, western wear, country wear, boho wear, business wear or casual evening wear. Description/Materials: I began with hand cutting and embossing aluminum sheet metal (the backing). The design is a stylized lotus blossom. I then oxidized the aluminum with a black patina which allows the design to be "brought out". I then cut and embossed copper sheet metal. The embossed design are bracnches or spiral design. This copper was oxidized for a dark patina. Then it was filed, sanded and polished until I reached the desired effect. This piece was cold connected to the aluminum with copper wire. The X design is hand hammered brass wire and was cold connected to the piece with sterling silver wire. The Elk is oxidized silver to give an antiqued look. 5 grade AAA hand cut Emeralds were beaded onto sterling silver wire. These Emeralds are hand cut for a more natural look. The bail was made from copper wire. The chain is antiqued copper as is the lobster claw clasp. This necklace is adjustable to 21.5 inches long. Ships gift boxed
