Osprey Wings - Leather Necklace by windfalcon Osprey Wings - Leather Necklace by windfalcon
I've always loved the brown/black/white of an osprey's wings. I was lucky enough to be commissioned to create a pair! This has sterling silver chain with a (what I believe is a real) turquoise stone. It's hand-carved from a base layer of 7-oz leather with a top layer of 2-oz, and hand painted with acrylics.

Ospreys are boss, as is this necklace. The turquoise stone was an excellent choice -- it adds a lovely focal spot of color that contrasts with the brown-and-white wings.

Really beautiful! The black-and-white is very elegant.
Maybe you could take a picture of someone actually wearing one of those wing necklaces? It's a bit hard to imagine.

Hi! This is my necklace actually (I commissioned it from Brenda because I see osprey all the time when I'm out in my kayak...they're my second favorite birds). Here's a picture of me wearing the wings: [link]

Thanks! That gives a good impression.
Kayking and watching birds sounds pretty good ;-)

When you started doing leather wing necklaces, I wondered to myself how an osprey set would look (since my avatar's an osprey gryphon, after all!) I love the way this came out! You did a lovely job of capturing the beautiful patterning on the wings. Nicely done!
