I fell in love with this enhancer the first time I saw it, but waited until it came down in price before making the purchase. I think that this is truly a work of art, with exquisite detailing. Mine arrived in perfect condition, and I think that it is a generous size with plenty of presence. The pearls and gemstones are nice quality, and if you look closely you'll even see that the head of the deer is highly polished, while the body is a matte finish. Even the back of the piece is nicely done.

This is so lovely. The body of the deer is so intricate and the deer has the sweetest face. There is something so calming and peaceful about this piece. I thought it would be too big, but it is the perfect size, not too small and not so large as to be overwhelming or awkward to wear to work.

Just purchased on the sale price and this deer is SOOOO Pretty and perfect in every way!
Beautiful silver scroll work on satin silver with black oxidation on the scroll lines; perfect & lovely turquoise flower; gorgeous Gold Om; lovely shiny perfect pearls; lovely medium purple amethyst briolette! Lots of gold on this one!
I had this on my Want List, and so glad I got it before it sold out!
Even my husband noticed it and liked it, which is very unusual since I have so much jewelry!
This is really cute and top quality and would make a great unusual gift; I may buy a second one as a gift for my daughter-in-law! I totally don't understand the negative reviews!
Rated 2 out of 5 by Booniegirl Very small
Thought this would become a very prized piece. Although very intricately made, the tiny size with the large clearance price made this a send back!
Rated 1 out of 5 by motherinlaw Horrific piece...where is Quality Control?
The first time I ordered this piece.......full price.......there was a defect in the workmanship. Sent it back with the hopes of maybe a clearance price later on. Certainly this did show up so I ordered again........this time the piece is horrific in quality.
NO...and I mean NO.....oxidation on the body of the deer. The amethyst briolette tho nice in color, is chipped.
Where does this end? It is ridiculous.

I first saw this beauty after my first encounter with two deer - a brown ('regular') and a piebald (white with brown spots) in my backyard. The piebald deer is ultra rare (less than 1% of all WHITE deer are piebald.) I keep pans of water for wildlife, and many creatures visit regularly. That is a special, treasured memory I will never forget and this pendant is a tribute to those glorious gifts of nature we should all appreciate. The craftsmanship, the gemstone quality, the materials used, and the spectacular design in this pendant/enhancer is remarkable. The pose is captivating and the movement is enchanting. The matte finish of the SUBSTANTIAL STERLING silver, crowned with the sparkle of the richly saturated gemstones and touches of 18k SOLID GOLD is exquisite. This glorious enhancer has an elegance about it, and the graceful flow of design adds to the magic, captivating the onlooker. For those of us who love the beauty of nature this is a must have. (Be sure to read Barbara Bixby's note re the design on this page.) Ms. Bixby's animal and creature designs remind us of the delicate balance of nature and, perhaps, inspire us with the passion to leap forward and do good when the moment presents itself. This wonderful pendant a real treasure. Grab one before it disappears forever.

Well got this sweet dear on sale, and she is exquisite. So soft and feminine and perfectly exceuted. Lovely turquoise, and rich color in the amethyst. I love the Buddha Curl pattern in the body, I hope there is more of this to come in other pieces. Well done!
Rated 5 out of 5 by JumperRider She is Perfect
What a lovely piece to add to your collection. I love everything about her. From the Gold OM (I collect om's) to the body carving to the lovely super clear saturated amethyst briolette dangle, she is so beautiful. I have gotten so many compliments and you can where this piece on so many different things. Surprisingly she does not weight a ton, she has some weight, but not so much that you would be limited in what you could put her on. She is a knockout.
I said I would recommend as a gift. Here is my caveat - the person you are gifting is your significant other, a dear close relative that you know is a collector of Barbara Bixby pieces or that this particular animal (deer) has special meaning to., you are starting a collection for a daughter or niece to present when old enough to wear, if not already. It would not be suitable to buy for the neighbor, co-worker, or teacher etc as it is expensive and in my opinion inappropriate for most of us to do so. I do understand in certain circles and communities that would not be the case. This is just my opinion do what you are comfortable with and accustomed to :)
