Although “little elephant” might sound like an oxymoron - like the term Jumbo Shrimp - we think it's an appropriate description for this necklace.
For one thing, it's very small – hardly 5/8 of an inch from tip of upraised trunk to tip of stubby tail. Also the typically stocky and cumbersome mass that usually comes to mind when you think of elephants has been transformed into a cute, streamlined shape. The ears are still huge but have been gracefully flattened against the body to avoid the Dumbo look and have even been given a subtly decorative curlicue treatment.
Likewise, the crescent-shaped eyelids have long lashes and are demurely lowered, which makes us suspect that this ladylike elephant might also be flirting. The lashes have even been darkened with a 'mascara' treatment to make them more attractive and she has her trunk cheerfully lifted up to bring you good luck.
