Manta Ray Necklace.

Do you remember, last year, I was working on this piece?  Well, here are is the finished necklace!

This one was snapped up before it even got on Etsy and it is now swimming around freely in South London.

It really was a challenge to find an appropriate way to render the magnificent manta ray in silver.  This one is swimming out of the dark depths and into the light surrounded by the most ferocious etch.

It really is rather THE most beautiful surface texture to behold.

Elsewhere in the Hybrid Handmade atelier these rather manly chunks of silver made a brief appearance before they too were snapped up.

New things are happening on the bench involving antlers and wild stags - all of this seems highly appropriate what with it being Burns Night tomorrow!
