This mixed media leather raven necklace showcases a variety of semiprecious stones with fabulous play of light effects! The bird was hand painted with iridescent colors that shift from subtle to brilliant, depending on the light.
MEASUREMENTS & MATERIALS
✭ Pendant measures 3.25″ long including the longest dangle
✭ Gemstone & leather neckline adjusts from 16″ – 38″.
✭ Handcrafted from tooling leather, dye, paint, sealant, glass seed beads and semiprecious stones
The soaring raven focal was crafted premium tooling leather that was cut, carved, tooled, dyed and painted before being sealed with a water resistant finish. It was then set in a hand sewn bezel of glass seed beads, stitched one bead at a time.
Dangling from the bird’s wings and tail are a series of gemstone beads, in shimmering hues of grey-green, blue and purple. The stones include faceted labradorite with brilliant blue-green flash, beautiful blue kyanite, and sparkling blue goldstone that looks as if it holds thousands of tiny stars.
These stones are echoed in the neckline, which also includes gorgeous rainbow obsidian beads. The stones taper off to a long leather tie, that allows you to adjust the neckline to your desired length. These photos show it hanging at the shortest and medium lengths; the longest length is almost to my belly button!
