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?
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.
-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.
