I always tend to relate elephant to kerala which is my native place and also relate it to manjadikuru(called circassian seeds). I quite cannot pinpoint why. May be some story I have read or heard when I was young or may be they both are related to Lord Krishna's temple.
The pendant and beads are made of polymer clay. The pendant is about 4 inches long. The adjustable necklace itself is 16 inches long. The cluster of 3 beads midway is adjustable. You can bring it all the way down towards the pendant or anywhere you want to. It is strung on burgandy colored leather cord.
The red seeds in the photo are the ones I was talking about - circassian seeds.
