The Serengeti plain is an area with so much distinct wildlife it is astounding. During a backpacking trip to Africa, my first safari was to this particular area. I could not get enough of the animals and their dynamic. Like anyone, the elephants were a favourite. The rails on this necklace remind me of the tusks of these magnificent creatures, while the piece of mokumé in the centre is a tribute to the oxbows who perch atop these elephants.
