Big Netsuke Monkey

    

This Netsuke Monkey is one of a pair. He was made as one of a pair for my friend, Chris, to wear in New Zealand while I have the other one here in the UK. I copied the features from a netsuke monkey that my dad brought back from Hong Kong in my early childhood. He’s been a familiar face for my of my life and he looks to me like a rather fun loving and mischievous chap – the perfect thing to represent a friendship. He has garnet eyes- as does his chum, and he is made out of silver. I really like the idea of netsuke rings and would love to keep playing with this idea. Look at them together... ohhh, lovely! 

In this set there is one for a boy and one for a girl but it doesn't have to be that way. They are both made of silver and have garnet eyes. These can be made using any connection- though faces, stones, patterns... I like the idea of friendship rings. Its especially nice when you are living far apart from your friends, a small connection somehow. The cost of these rings depends on what you want made so if you're interested fill in a commission form and I can get back to you (both)...
