This jade dolphin pendant is carved from a lovely New Zealand jade. It has silvery flecks of some sort of mineral inclusion and I have used the rind as a contrast which I feel is like the dolphin breaking the waves as it breathes.
The inlaid eyes are gold flakes I have found here in golden bay, New Zealand.
The jade is self collected a long time ago and proved so popular that it is nearly all gone now.
The dolphin is 6cm high and 6.2cm wide.
