A Chocolate Cowboy

Another truffle mould, with agate beads strung on knotted silk, set in copper.  My continuing adventures with hand engraving are shown on the back of the setting.  I love the soft, autumnal colors of the beads, as if taken from a forest on the edge of autum, with soft greens, caramel browns, creams and yellows.  I have used a star milagro for a chain tag, and scratched my initials on the back.  Will list this soon in my Etsy store.  The papoose pendant is being reworked with walnut jasper beads of a delicious color, to call to mind walnut vanilla creme.
