I imagine them chatting to each other. The little mouse wondering why he thought it was a good idea to follow his snail friend all the way up into the tree. "Mice don't climb trees!", he thought. But he remembered we do lots of things to make others happy because it makes *us* happy.
This pendant was carved entirely from sterling silver scraps I have left over from making other pieces in my little backyard studio. I melt and fuse them together to create the heart twig they call home, I carve the tiny mushrooms and give them spotted tops, and even give the little mouse a fluffy coat and the tiniest of ears. There are clusters of leaves here and there to give them something to nibble on and sprouts of mushrooms because we all know that is a favorite food of snails! Can you see the little mouse's tail intertwined with the mushrooms? Or the snails eyestalks looking for their next adventure? The craggy tree branch with all it's nooks and crannies was given a darkening patina and then hand polished to give it texture, depth, and life. This is a one of a kind piece made entirely by hand.
The pendant itself measures 1.75 inches wide and tall. It will come to you on an 18 inch long sterling silver necklace and packaged sweetly ready for gift giving. One of a kind pieces that are already completed are mailed off to you in 3-5 business days.
