Indian Elephant

Elephants are thought of as symbols of strength, wisdom, happiness and longevity and there is a general belief in many eastern cultures that an elephant with the trunk pointed up "stores" luck and one with the trunk down "dispenses" it.

So you can see why I really enjoyed making this little Indian elephant, with its diamond eye and ruby blanket.This was a lovely commission from my friend Dal for her sisters special birthday.

Red Thread...

I recently sent a selection from my Sewn Up range to Gill Wing Jewellery Gallery in Islington. The red stitching is exclusive to them. I think it looks very dramatic, but also quite romantic for Valentines...
