Barrel of Monkeys Necklace
The Necklace started off with a set of vintage Barrel of Monkeys I found at a thrift shop. A couple of months earlier I found a travel size set. When I found the large ones I knew it was time to put this project in motion. I molded the monkey. Manipulating the wax version, I made the two arms touch the body to form a link. 5 Monkeys were then cast in White Brass. I then hand made ring for ring a 2 on 2 link chain out of bronze to hang the monkeys from. The chain was finished off with my signature Racoon Penis toggle clasp. The entire chain is 22". The monkeys are 1.5" High X 2" wide and the chain is 9mm thick.
