Owls are typically solitary birds, the literary collective noun for a group of owls is a parliament. Isn't that something? Thanks, Wikipedia.
Anyway, about Nancy. She was handmade from scratch, right out of my imagination, from sterling silver. She started out as s lump of sterling metal clay, eventually fired in a kiln down to solid sterling silver. She was oxidized and selectively hand-polished, and hangs from a lightly oxidized 18" sterling rolo chain.
She measures almost exactly one inch tall (or ~2.5cm), and about .75 inch wide (or ~2cm).
***Please note - the original Fancy Nancy has sold, so yours will be whipped up from scratch. As such, there may be tiny differences.
