Harris Hawk - Leather Wing Pendant by windfalcon Harris Hawk - Leather Wing Pendant by windfalcon
After attending the New York State Falconry Association meet last week, I had the awesome experience of meeting several Harris' Hawks and realized how COOL they are. Seriously, Harris' Hawks are awesome. They have gorgeous plumage and an interesting personality (including screaming angrily at any creature they deem suspicious). After returning, I was inspired to create a pendant based on these beautiful birds.

This pendant is a little bit smaller than my other wing pendants, mostly because I find that the bigger, bulkier pendants don't sit as well on the neck. The wings at the widest point are about 3.5 inches, and the dangling tail feather is 2.25 inches. It's hand-carved and shaped from 7-oz. leather (bottom layer) and 4-oz leather (top layer and dangling feather). The chain is a 'gunmetal' chain, though I may also make sterling chain pendants if there's interest!

This is available in my Etsy shop - [link] Sold! But I can make more! If interested let me know :3

these look great, but in my opinion i think they would look better if they came to a point at the bottom of the wings :)

This is beautiful. It's odd that I found this on the front page after researching falconry. I'd really love to see about doing this myself, but lack of space for mews means I can't :( I do hope that one day I can get to it!

Oh, lord this is so beautiful.
The beads match the feather beautifully, and the wings with the swirl seem to be just.. Honestly flying in mid air.
I saw someone asking about an Owl, which would be especially beautiful if it were a snowy owl. But, since this is my first time seeing your work and I already love it, I'm going to Watch you, haha. Keep making these, they are truly works of art.

It's so beautiful, I love the wings! And yes, Harris hawks are really fantastic birds. Tthe chain goes very well together with the hawk colours, and the swirl is a great detail. How long time did you use on it?

Harris hawks have so much charm! At the Texas Hawking Association meet over the summer I got to hold my first hawk, a female Harris hawk named JC. I'm glad that Harris' are available to Texas falconer apprentices, being a pre-apprentice myself XD They are handsome birds, and have so much personality. I love it whenever they get suspicious and do that hiss-screech XD It can be quite amusing.

Gorgeous, I absolutely love it!
I have got to get one of these to make my falconer friends jealous ;) A pendant like this is a great gift for a falconer!

And I agree with you on the Harris hawks, they're awesome birds. Full of personality, great hunters and beautiful looks. I love my female!
(I'm not gonna use your art to advertise my work, so I'm not posting a link or thumb but if you want to see her, I have photos of her in my gallery, in the birds of prey folder)
