I have wanted to do a crow for quite some time, and, since the Sat Markets and craft shows are done there is time to explore. I carved him out of wax and cast him up in sterling silver. There is more work to do to refine the carving but I am pleased with him. The first little bird I carved I call Jimmy. We used to feed the birds and ducks at the park pond. There was one who was very thin and walked very tall. He reminded me of Jimmy Stewart in his actions and strut. Jimmy is standing proud and tall in his differences. I will be working on refining this crow and hopefully make another design to be made into pendants for our Sat Market.
