Tiny chickadees have the amazing ability to lower their body temperature to withstand and adapt to even the coldest of conditions, making them a powerful symbol of dignified strength and resilience in the face of hardship.

Handmade in my Ohio studio, I sculpted this tiny chickadee in wax and cast it in sterling silver. I soldered it to a tiny silver Maple twig which I cast from one that I collected while walking through Cuyahoga Valley National Park.

The tiny bird is less than 1/4" tall, and the twig is about 1" wide. It is suspended from an 18" solid silver rolo chain with an additional extension chain that will add up to 2 more inches to the length. It is finished with a handmade artisan "S" hook clasp and buffed to an elegant satin sheen.

Happy father’s day from my dad’s work bench. He died young and I miss him every day, but when I sit at his bench (which is now my jeweler’s bench) I see the marks he left on it years ago and I feel his presence. . . . . . . . .#riojeweler #snagmember #metalsmith #jewelrydesigner #handmade #thisiscle #jewelersbench #silversmith #workbench #dad #fathersday2018 #jeweler #fashionaccessories #missmydad #makersmovement #creativelifehappylife #fretzhammers #blackandwhite #family #studio #artisanjewelry
