Minky Brass Necklace
Minky is one funky monkey. He loves to show off his death defying trapeze skills on the jungle vines above Blamoville. If you slip on a banana peel, blame Minky. He’s cheeky, that one.
To create Minky as a silver necklace, I first drew him 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 tail to the brass chain.
Designed by Spencer Hansen, this silver plated Monkey pendant measures 3 cm x 2.5 cm and hangs on a 70 cm brass chain.
