The Junk Thief

Meet the Junk Thief. I call him that because I made another crow similar to this one last year. He is wearing fancy, (fake) diamond encrusted wings and a jewel tail, and I named him the Jewel Thief.  Remember him?

Sculptures 104CR

Look at him, hogging this post that doesn’t belong to him!  He’s shameless.

I more recently make this poor thing in the pictures below. I knew he was ugly and unfortunate from the moment I called him finished. He was kind of sad and strange, and I just had to laugh, because he is sort of the opposite of my Jewel Thief. Thus, he is the Junk Thief.

Junk Thief

-Measures 2 1/2 inches tall by 4 1/2 inches long by 1 3/4 inches wide.

-Made with mostly 19 gauge dark annealed wire, as well as some silver wire for the feet. The tail is some random piece of old jewelry I had, and the wings are from a metal flower pin that I took apart to “build” wings. The beak is a cone-shaped bead from an art store. Like I said, he’s sort of homely, but that’s just how it goes sometimes.

But don’t despair, the Junk Thief has just as much dignity and self-esteem as his rival, Jewel Thief. 😉

Thank you for looking.

Jewel Thief

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? 😉

Jewel Thief

– 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!
