I purchased a jewelry lot at a flea market last spring and that's where the idea for this Ibex came to mind. An ivory-colored bracelet was among the jewelry pieces. It was hinged so that it was two half-moon shaped pieces. I immediately thought of the graceful, beautiful ibex and couldn't resist taking the bracelet apart. The solid, curving pieces with knobby jewels made me think of the horns of these stunning animals.
The rest is history.
This is is made with a consistent blend of dark annealed and copper wire to suggest a warm - almost brindle - brown. The ears are small feather embellishments, and I added black chain for this proud goat's long beard. He measures 5.5 inches tall by 7 inches long by 3 inches wide.
