Faux Metal Elephant

I was delighted to be asked by Smiling Stef to make a sample for this week's Inspiration Challenge at SCS.  The piece I chose from the Sundance catalog was an Elephant Charm Necklace, with a sterling silver ellie and turquoise beads.  As you can see, I used the Faux Metal Technique, and beads of silver.  The bgs are brushed silver and turquoise glitter paper.

This is also for the Speedy's Friends challenge today.  The theme is "Make It Sparkle", and IRL, this glitter paper is FABulous!!  The elephant image comes from Mark's Finest Papers set called African Veldt.

Thanks for looking, and please join both challenges!!
