Happy Duck

Casting tree with a number of silver duck pendants all marching side by side. The little blobs are where air bubbles in the investment plaster were trapped against the wax models.
And the final product with a big colour change alexandrite (this one is a synthetic as you may have guessed, if it was natural it would be a museum piece.)
The trouble with these things is that they are so effulgent they are hard to use without making the work look cheap or pretentious. Manic or exuberant seems to work.
