Northern Shoveler Wings - Leather Necklace by windfalcon Northern Shoveler Wings - Leather Necklace by windfalcon
Now for something that's not a raptor! This was a commission for ~khyterra of a pair of leather Northern Shoveler wings. Ducks are so gorgeous! Of course I'm biased towards any bird with iridescence :3

7 oz leather with a layer of 2 oz leather for the coverts, hand painted with acrylics.

Wing necklaces are $85, which includes chain and beads. If you'd like sterling silver chain instead, it's an extra $15, and shipping is $5 in the U.S. or $7 internationally. :)

You can either Paypal me directly (I can note you my email), or if you'd prefer to buy it off Etsy, I have custom listings right here - [link] Though that's for regular chain and not sterling. :)

Wow, I really like the shapes. I'd have never expected duck wings to look so striking.

Ducks have gorgeous wings. They're pointed, much like a falcons. Ducks in fact are some of the fastest birds in level flight!

I agree. It's just that when I look at ducks in flight, I've always thought they looked goofy because their wings appear so small compared to their bodies. But the shape, as you've pointed out, is anything but goofy; they look elegant, especially with that iridescence. I think this is one of my favorites of the wing necklaces you've made.

And wow, I had no idea that ducks were that fast!
