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, the two pieces of mokumé in the centre are not so much the oxbows who perch atop these elephants, but the partnering of these matriarchs with loved, lifelong friend, or their offspring.
