The simple call of a Mourning Dove in the silence of dawn has always made me take pause, to breathe and appreciate life the world around us. I designed this necklace to remind us to pause for peace and reflection. This tiny bird necklace is a perfect talisman or gift for those who need to find peace, and for those who feel a connection to birds and nature.

Handmade in my Ohio studio, this solid sterling silver necklace is one of a kind. I sculpted the little Mourning Dove in wax and cast it in sterling silver, then soldered it to a tiny silver bent Maple tree twig, which I collected while walking along the Buckeye Trail in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park.

It is suspended from a 20" solid silver rolo chain with a handmade artisan "S" hook clasp. It is buffed to a satin finish.

Craftsmanship and quality in my work is incredibly important to me, which is why I use only solid sterling silver (not plated) for the entire piece, and I solder all of my jump rings so the piece will not work itself loose from the chain and fall off.

Shipped lovingly in a non-tarnishing velvet bag inside a matte black gift box and tied with white grosgrain ribbon.
