Golden Cheeked Warbler (Setophaga chrysoparia) is a small and bright bird living in Northern America. It’s endangered because its natural habitat – juniper and oak woodlands have been destroyed due to agriculture and economic activities. Because the breeding area of whole species is relatively small – only a part of a Texas state – it’s even more important to save its natural habitat.
This fancy 3D bow tie is for real elegant fun lovers.
It's 13 cm (5,1 inches) and 5,5 cm (2,2 inches) wide. The beads are sewn on thin (double layered) felt. On the back of the beaded bow tie there is a bow tie made of thicker felt, to give it a volume and make it dimensional.
The bow tie is attachable to your clothing with one usual brooch pin - so this means 'one size fits all'.
Estimate production time - about 1 week (the time varies on the changes you like to make) + few days for shipping (so you must give this bird at least 2 weeks to get to you :) )
The summer 2012 collection „The Last Dodo” is a tribute to colors, fun and most of all- birds. The collection consists of pieces in each of which one endangered species of birds is featured.
Birds have been a huge inspiration for Malvine.lv since forever. This time while creating a concept for Sumer 2012 collection I decided that it is time to give back to our flying friends.
There are about 400 endangered bird species in the world (and that is just the globally endangered ones, there are still species that are special local concern). Most of the endangerment is caused by the actions of men – is it the agricultural or other economical activities, climate change or hunting.
The collection name is inspired by mysterious and unfortunately already few hundred years extinct bird – Dodo (Raphus cucullatus) which as well is featured in the collection as a brooch. Last dodo died just after 80 years people had first discovered it. I think that Dodos terrifying destiny must be taken as an impulse for helping the ones that are still cheering us with their songs and looks.
