I just had to post pics of my final project for school. The assignment was to create a wearable piece of jewelry using cast elements with fabricated pieces. In other words, you couldn’t just cast the whole thing. My inspiration was those little plastic monkeys that hang on drinks. I created a monkey cage brooch with one monkey on the outside and one on the inside. The cage door slides up to let the monkey free. The inside piece is removable so you can wear the monkey as a pendant. The entire piece is created from sterling silver and measures 2.5″ tall, 2″ wide. It’s really cool!

The monkeys are my favorite! I think that you should start marketing them heavily. Everyone will want one!
