Tusk: this order was fun – the client wanted a different and personal take on the (currently very trendy) ivory tusk/bone/horn pendant thing. It’s about 2″ long.
Took me a few rather comical tries before i finally figured out how to make a tusk in glass… Quite impressed with myself actually as this is not only my first tusk but also my first successful bead with a horizontal (as opposed to vertical) hole.
I was asked to give the pendant the look of antique ivory – i think i accomplished that quite nicely. The ivory base reacted beautifully to the silvered stringer by crackling and turning a bit golden…
