This 'baby' owl skull is oxidized sterling silver and set on a wide band. The skull is perched at a slight angle on the shank so it's beak doesn't touch your finger whilst wearing it, making a comfortable fit despite it's slight weight. Oxidized so the beak, eye cavities, and small details caught in the piece from the original skull are a dark gray black, allowing for the silver of the rest of the piece to pop.
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 was immediately drawn to the strange aspects of this particular owl, for it digs within the earth to make it's home.
Measures: 1.5 inches long & an inch at it's widest.
