Parrot in a ring tack pin in sterling silver (Parrot "U") CLOSEOUT
This was supposed to be a pendant. But every so often the casting process doesn't work quite as expected, and molds don't fill completely with metal. The results are usually disastrous, but occasionally they can be salvaged. This was one of those instances. The ends of the wings and tail did not fill completely, and neither did the hanging loop that was on the top of the bamboo hoop. But the rest of the bird is fine. I wasn't able to hang it from a chain, so I soldered a tack pin finding to the back and turned it into a hat or lapel pin. It is solid sterling silver except for the pin finding, which is silver-plated brass to make it stronger (silver is actually very soft and bends easily). The pin back is molded plastic. As this design was created literally by accident, it is being sold as a one-off in the closeout section, at a slightly lower price than the similar pendant would be sold. It is approx. 1 1/2" long and 3/4" wide, or 35mm x 20mm.
