I’m not saying this bird actually is a jewel thief, but with his glamorous wings and tail, it looks pretty suspicious, doesn’t it? 😉
– Sculpture measures 7 inches long by 4 1/2 inches high by 2 1/2 inches wide.
– Made with 16 gauge dark annealed wire, 19 gauge dark annealed wire, 24 gauge steel (silver colored) wire for the legs and beak, and some other sizes for other various parts of the bird. The tail feathers are – you guessed it – metal feathers taken from an old necklace, and the wings were a set of angel-shaped wings that were originally a single piece. I clipped them in half, because I always imagined a bird with the wings, and cleaned them up, as they were very, very green and gunky from age!
Thanks for looking!
