Long time blog readers will know that I admire elephants - such majestic, intelligent and family orientated creatures. Elephants are at the brink of extinction in Africa due to poaching. Some good news is China has banned ivory trading by the end of this year which will effectively disable the world's largest market for ivory.
One amazing polymer clay artist who truly celebrates these wonderful creatures is Inga of Kni.Kni on Flickr. Working with just a simple elephant shape, she frees herself to create them in beautiful colors and designs. Shown here are just a small selection of her designs. I had difficulty trying to select my favorites!
She makes pendants and brooches and occasionally with coordinated earrings.
And even a matching handmade greeting card!
Her attention to detail is noteworthy as is her photographic skills!
Inga also writes a blog but it is written in Latvian.
