Here are some decent pictures of the Tagua Pendants- 2 wolves and a coyote.
The two wolves were practice pieces. Before now, all my scrimshaw was done using baked pieces of polymer clay and a knife or needle tool- they were also much larger and I didn’t know what I was doing. Having never worked with Tagua, I thought it would be good to work with something i know so well.
Both wolf pendants are adorned with Rainbow Moonstone Cabochons, and are approximately 25mmx35mm. This is the order in which I finished them in.
Coyote is adorned with an Oregon Sunstone cabochon, and the drawing is done with stipple (pointillism), which gives it a totally different look (and is exceptionally hard to photograph).
Both wolves are looking for homes. And while you see just the pendant in the images- It will come to you on an adjustable black velvet rope type of necklace. I ran out of silver jump rings which is why these are not shown on necklaces. Since they are practice pieces, I’m going to just ask $15 dollars each plus shipping (USA ONLY PLEASE- I’m currently in the process of researching if I can ship this overseas). Each piece has at least 7 hours of work in the drawing part alone. They are sealed with a beeswax polish, which is natural and isn’t going to harm you or your skin when worn.
Tagua does darken with age and should not be submerged in water. No animal Ivory was used in the making of these pieces.
The coyote is staying with me unless someone can convince me otherwise.
