Billy the rabbit holds 18 world records in cap gun target shooting. Finding pleasure in the escape of a good book and the sweet sound of the morning birds, Billy can often be found telling his own stories of travel adventures, none of which have ever been proven true (or false).
Billy was inspired by the great times I had as a kid wearing a bunny onesie my mother had sewn. When I started Blamo, Billy was one of the first woodcarvings I created, and this mini Billy necklace I love because he serves as a gentle reminder to the wearer that fun and adventure are always just around the corner.
I first drew my lucky rabbit and then sculpted him out of clay. Then I gave my clay version to Nyoman, who carved a miniature version out of wax, then cast the wax sculpture in brass. Ardi, the silversmith at my workshop, takes it from there, cleaning up the casting and fastening the loop on his back to the brass chain.
Designed by Spencer Hansen, this solid brass Billy pendant measures 3 cm and hangs on a 70 cm brass chain.
Please note that because all Blamo jewelry is handmade, despite our efforts to create the perfect art figure, each one is unique and may contain minor imperfections…or as we like to call it, character.
