My dear young fellow,' the Old-Green-Grasshopper said gently, 'there are a whole lot of things in this world of ours you haven't started wondering about yet.
- Roald Dahl

To make this grasshopper, once again I reticulated silver to create the body. I used my flex shaft to carve out all of the ridges in the body. I then soldered the head to the body, soldered the wings together, folded them over the body, soldered them into place. Last came the legs and antennae. A fantastic challenge and so much fun!

This grasshopper is a miniature sculpture, NOT a piece of jewelry. I can turn it into a pendant if you prefer, just let me know at the time you place your order. I would include a sterling silver chain or leather cord at no additional charge. It's a bit on the heavier side since it is solid sterling silver, so personally think it's best as a sculpture...but I will leave the decision up to you.

This piece is one of a kind.
