It is believed that the appearance of certain birds, like falcons and cardinals, is a connection to the spirit world; that encounters with such birds are the closest we come on earth to communicating with those who have gone before us. Bound neither to land nor sky, they are a conduit to a world beyond our own. Perhaps this is why many of us feel such a fondness for these creatures.

This solid sterling silver necklace is one of a kind and handmade. I sculpted this little bird in wax and then cast it in sterling silver, then soldered it to a tiny silver tube and backplate with a bark-like, organic texture. The tube is mirrored at the top of the piece, which serves as the bail through which the chain holds the pendant. It is suspended from an long, 24" silver rollo chain. The piece is buffed to a shiny finish.

Waiting to Fly is a made-to-order item, so please allow 10-14 days for me to create this necklace for you with love and care.


"I am speechless. 3 months ago I unexpectedly lost my best friend... my mom. I have been searching for the perfect gift to give myself which would symbolize the love I had for my mom and the love she gave back to me and her beautiful spirit. This is by far the most spectacular piece of jewelry that I will ever own. Saying it's beautiful doesn't even do it justice. You are an incredible artist that has brought a happiness to me that is priceless. My mom would have loved it as much as I do. Thank you Teresa!"
