Dusk Raven - Leather Wing Necklace by windfalcon Dusk Raven - Leather Wing Necklace by windfalcon
The only thing I love more than wire spirals are silver wire spirals on dark wings :3  I picked up some small seed beads to try something a little new with this wing necklace and went ahead and strung some to hang from the wings too.  This is based on a raven's wing shape (and very loosely on the color shimmer in their feathers), but it's certainly  more of a fantasy design.

Made from 7-oz leather with a 2-oz leather top layer, hand hand-painted in acrylics.

Also for sale in my Etsy shop! www.etsy.com/listing/174152693… Sold!  Contact me if you'd like one of your own!

I need to start saving. The bigger problem is how do you choose which one when you make so many awesome necklaces?!

Depending on how many projects I am working on, it can take me anywhere from a few days to a couple weeks.

Could you create on which I would be able to purchase in about a year. You would have plenty if time to create one, and I would have enough time to save up money

All of these are brilliant. Such dedicated attention to form and detail. The first one to catch my eye was the osprey, actually, but this raven one is in my colors.

Is there anywhere I can see what these necklaces look like when they're worn? How the wings lie and so on?
