This piece is 1 1/4 inchs high x 7/8 of an inch wide and has a silver plated bail. Why does an artist make pendants with a giraffe on them? Believe it or not, I have been asked for it a number of times. Now I have to hope that a lot of people love giraffes and I have to admit, that they are quite interesting! The background of this gold pendant is a dark green and made uneven on purpose to give the pendant more of a jungle feel. Bet you'll get a lot of nice comments if you buy this pendant!
