The Eastern Winds Pin
This listing is for a ONE OF A KIND pin, based on a previous ring I designed called the Eastern Winds ring, a prelude to the Eastern Winds collection, based on my time in Eastern Africa, to be released at a later time.
A "Vulture Stone", contains a piece of African Vulture feather I found in Tanzania set under glass, in a stamped scalloped bezel. It is bordered by sterling silver roped wire as well as two raised ray stamped design embellishments to signify a sunrise and sunset. It was then given a patina to bring out thosev details, and to give the piece an antiqued look. Then given a lavender oil and wax coating to keep the patina in place and satisfy the senses.
This pendant measures 3/4" tall, and 7/8" wide.
It comes with a single central pin back setting, with a pull lock pin back for extra security, to insure you will never lose your new heirloom handmade pin <3
As a side note, due to the natural and delicate nature of the feather it is not recommended to wear this pin underwater/allow it prolonged wear in moisture. The setting will come to you air tight, however over time with constant wear stones on all pieces may shift, and it is always wise to not press ones luck and allow delicate and treasured pieces to receive only minimal time in the elements.
