Gator!  The SilverDog Way

Gator! The SilverDog Way

The gator is done. He was an anniversary gift for my gator husband, who wears a lot of hats. So a gator hatband charm seemed like a natural fit and was a fun surprise. Getting the teeth right was hard but not impossible, just a lot of very deft sawing.



He is sterling silver on a brass background with a sort of rough finish, not highly polished, which was by request.

He’s a bit oversized but after all, no such thing as a minimalist gator. And he lives on a big hat!
