If you are looking for shiny and new this ode to the crow necklace probably won’t suit you as all the objects and materials in this piece are found and upcycled/recycled and have natural patina of history and mystery!
The center piece is made from an unusual found object. It is a stiffened leathery holed object 3.5 inches long. I backed it with a metal brassy piece to create a window. Behind the tiny mica window is the word: crow.
Along with beads and baubles I used large vintage safety pins, old buttons, a tiny light bulb, shiny crystals on chains, and old tokens to create the sides. The top part of the side pieces are vintage black ribbons and added a brass fastener for a clasp on the top. The sides are each about 8 inches long. I can pull the piece over my head or it can be put on with the brass clasp
