Cast owl claw, immortalized in bronze and finished in black rhodium plating, giving it a very dark shining finish, similar to an oil slick metallic. Bold and striking, this piece is paired with a 30 inch sterling silver bar link chain, oxidized in my favorite shade of gloomy grey, strung through the wrist of the claw, so the claw rests nicely against the body.
The owl has a sordid history within many cultures. It is at once a creature revered and damned, given powers of wisdom and prophecy while at the same time being likened to the raven for it's tendencies to be able to speak with the dead, for to hear the call of an owl within a dark forest meant certain death. I've been sleeping with my tarot under my pillow for weeks now, dreaming of this piece.
The claw is impressive in size and bears a slight weight. It's nails are quite sharp and the detail is exquisite.
This listing is for one claw.
The last photo shows it in reference to a sparrow claw, the sparrow claw is not included in the price of this necklace and it is not attached to it.
Claw measures 3 and half inches long and 2 inches wide at it's widest.
Unlike everything else listed in the shoppe this piece is crafted entirely in bronze to keep the cost effective due to the substantial weight of this item. If you are interested in having this piece crafted from solid sterling silver please contact us via email for pricing.
